Put Painshill on your list for a great family day out! This beautiful 18th century landscape garden, based in Cobham Surrey, has everything to get the kids back to nature.
Winding paths take you on a journey to discover stunning views, meadows to run through, trees to climb and amazing garden buildings, including a sparkling Crystal Grotto, a Gothic Tower and a Ruined Abbey.
Outdoor activity cards and nature trails are available from the Visitor Centre. Under 5s may bring a bike or scooter in to help them around the landscape and there is a completely accessible route around the lake for those with buggies. Also, dogs are allowed in on short leads, so the whole family can come in and enjoy!
There is a new natural play area made with materials from around the landscape garden, the area includes a log house, dens, stepping stones and balance logs. Relax in the picnic area or visit Mr Hamilton’s Tea Room to complete the day.
