Grab a woodland spotter sheet and take a stroll up to the Canadian camp and two-storey treehouse. Enjoy the rush of endorphins as you get active with dance classes on the lawn with LCA Dance Academy on Thursday mornings (free, booking required).
If you've had your fill of outdoor fun then head back into the house. Here, you'll meet Winston Churchill's soft toys in the study. Think creatively and write a story of their escape back to a natural habitat.
