Children can go wild in the grounds of lovely Leighton Hall this summer.

The historic home is offering lots of activities and fun for kids this year, including teddies, sandpits, mazes, swings, dens and competitions, among lots of otheractivities to give children a great holiday season.

And, new for this year, the stately home has now hidden away in its Woodland Walk, a lot of new - and free - fun features for children.

Youngsters can spend hours “Finding the Faces” - using paper and pencils to record where they spot the fun faces hidden on trees on the woodland walk.

The woods are also filled with new “dens” for children to hide and play in - one is even all set out with a table, chairs and tea set, allowing children to take their favourite toy for a secret teddy bears picnic.

Or they can run wild around the caterpillar maze or play in the brand new sand pit.

Adults can explore the house on a guided tour while children track the Teddy Bear Treasure Hunt, following clues around the house to find the teddy family. With a different bear hiding in each room, the children must record them all for a chance of winning a weekly prize draw.

Families can watch birds of prey demonstrations at 3.30pm each day or enjoy a cuppa in the Hall’s tearoom,

The new attractions were dreamed up by Leighton Hall’s estate manager Lucy Arthurs, who said: “Leighton Hall already offers so much to do for families but we wanted to add some new features for our younger visitors.”

Leighton Hall is open Tuesday to Friday and Sundays in August from 2pm to 5pm. Entry is £7.75 for adults, £4.95 for children aged five to 12 years or £6.75 for OAPs. Family tickets are is £24.50.
