At Kelburn Estate and Country Centre whatever the weather there's always something to keep the kids occupied at Kelburn Castle Country Centre, with their newest features being a Bike Park and Horse Trekking! The first 1km of track for the off road biking experience opened in June 2015, and you can access the gee-gees for lessons, paddock rides and hacks. Cool!
Their most popular attraction is the Secret Forest, a complex of woodland paths and raised walkways with surprises at every turn. Then, there's the famous Adventure Course, a challenging trail of high walkways and rope swings, their fortress-style Stockade, with a 20ft high tower and the Playbarn, a softplay maze of tunnels, slides and dens.
Playing by the spectacular waterfalls is always an irresistible attraction for children. The Waterfall Pool, set in a spectacular sandstone grotto is only 250 yards from the Centre.
At Kelburn they have an exciting range of fascinating wildlife from rutting Roe Deer to squeaking voles and swooping buzzards. Thanks to the guided Ranger Walks you can find out all about these creatures from the house team of expert staff.
Throughout the year you can also see Peregrine Falcons and Hen Harriers gliding over the glen and Dippers may be seen perching on the rocks. Badgers, Otters and Mink rustle around the burn.

Fab day out

Excellent family day out - good value for money. Loads to do and see for kids of all ages - ours ranged from 2-7. Kids loved the playparks and pony trekking - also the duck race and feeding hens and goats. Staff are enthusiastic and great with kids... will def go back x
