Are your children restless, fed-up and bored of sitting in front of the television? Studfold Adventure Nature Trail is set in one of the most beautiful locations in the country. It will engage, fascinate and delight. Find the secret boxes; solve the clues; leave something in the swap box; spend some time in the tranquil bird hide, historic barn or magical wood. Sit back and let the stresses of everyday life disappear as the children play in the fantastic play and picnic area.There is so much to do. You will leave with children that are nicely tired who have walked without complaint and are one step closer to an appreciation of our beautiful countryside!!

The trail was fun filled and engaging. Having lots to keep the kids occupied meant we were able to relax as we wandered round,... More

Truly awesome walking treks through fields, hills and trees. Some slightly challenging terrain but not too tough

Really enjoyed this adventure walk, full of activities for the children to do, takes around 2 hours, they can bring your picnic into the wood as well. Would really recommend this. 3 yo and 11 yo girls went, both found it very enjoyable.

We took our granddaughter who absolutely loved the trail. There is something for everyone including stunning scenery. She loved solving all the clues and reading the poems etc. A lot of hard work and imagination has been put into this and it is well worth a visit.

I visited Studfold with my friend and her two young granddaughters. The staff were really friendly and we had a lovely time following the fairy trail. The children both had brought their fairy wings and loved finding all the fairy houses. They also enjoyed the mini beast trail sheet that I had downloaded from the Studfold website. Our picnic was...

Superb! Took our one year old (obviously a little too young to be reading clues & finding things) but there was something for everyone! Lived in the area all my life and never knew about this place. Absolutely value for money and a great day out (in dry weather!)

If you're looking for somewhere outdoors which is interesting, informative and fun then you really must visit this amazing nature trail. Stupendous sculptures encourage the imagination of all ages, along with the wonderful wildlife which is in amazing abundance. You will really have a tremendous time. Enjoy!

I just spent the day here with my husband and our little girl. We had a great time following the clues along the trails and counting the Easter Bunnies. It was wonderful to spend time somewhere that didn't feel commercial. We will certainly be visiting regularly as our little girl grows up.
