It was reported this week by the National Press that children spend a little more than an hour outside a day according to official figures. Thorp Perrow, the 100acre Arboretum, located just outside Bedale wants to buck this trend this half-term with a great family day enjoying nature and the outdoors.
Families are invited to take ‘A Walk in the Woods’ which includes some fun outdoor activities, craft projects and a way to encourage nature into the garden at home. As a further incentive, over the half term period, kids eat for free* in the Tearoom, making a family day out more affordable.
Alongside the activities pack, families visiting Thorp Perrow can enjoy fascinating Bird of Prey displays; run wild and free in the adventure play area; stroke a wallaby or feed the Meerkats; and explore 100acres of bays, glades and avenues – including several hidden play areas!
