How do you like to unwind with the family? If long woodland walks and strolling through beautiful gardens is your thing, then you’ll love Nymans. It’s a National Trust gem, featuring 20th Century gardens with a romantic house and ruins. It’s the perfect place for a day out in nature and a picnic in the woods!
While you’re looking for inspiration for your own garden, the kids can explore a bamboo jungle, build a den, or test their balancing skills on the wooden stepping stones. Pick up a spotter activity and send your little explorers on a hunt for seasonal flowers, squirrels, bugs and birds.
Venture even further on a woodland walk. Enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, while the kids run around and get involved in all sorts of natural play. To make the experience even more engaging for the little ones, grab a free family trail from the welcome hub. These are seasonal, so you’ll discover something different every time you visit.
