The How Hill Trust
Telephone: 01692 678555
The How Hill Trust is primarily an environmental education facility working with school groups.
They also offer adult courses and residential courses, but for our purposes they also have some great little features available to the public.
The How Hill Staithe and Toadhole Cottage visitor centre is the local resource centre for picking up trail and map information, but also importantly to get your tickets for the Electric Eel boat trips! An unusual and educational wildlife jaunt will give you the chance to see some of these creatures in their natural habitat and understand them better through informed guided commentary.
Seasonal activities available here include the How Hill Nature Tots programme for 2 to 4 year olds with guided outdoor sessions with activities including mini beast hunting, den building and simple orienteering.
Please note that the house itself and it's own gardens are not open to the public. The grounds surrounding the private ones however and the whole of How Hill Staithe is available for family exploration!

It may be worth checking out The How Hill Trust's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact The How Hill Trust before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
The formal gardens surrounding the house are closed to the public when groups are in residence, and during events.
If in doubt, please call first to check.
