Summer entertainment at Newark Park

There's plenty to do at Newark Park in Gloucestershire this summer from lawn games and trails to outdoor theatre.

From Saturday, July 23, through till the end of August there will be a sensory trail to take children and families on an adventure around the garden looking for activity stations which will encourage tuning into your senses and looking at the garden in a new light.

Free trail leaflets can be picked up from visitor reception when you arrive at Newark Park, located near the village of Ozleworth, Wotton-under-Edge.

There are also two play areas at Newark Park; the woodland play area full of enchanting woodland animal carvings, and the folly play area for the more courageous adventurer.

Meanwhile in the house, visitors can discover what the conservation team gets up to behind the scenes, learning more about what the team does to look after the valuable items at Newark Park and get a hands-on look at the types of equipment they use on the top floor of the house.

There's plenty to keep little ones entertained in the house too; they can dress up as a lord or lady in the Buff bedroom, plan an extravagant Tudor feast, or go hunting for miniature dragons.

Amy Taylor, property operations manager, said "We're really excited to welcome visitors this summer to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Newark Park. The gardens are looking delightful, and there's lots of shady spots to enjoy a picnic. It's the perfect place to treat yourself to an ice cream and catch the breeze from the south terrace."

The wider 700-acre estate is home to a network of woodland walking trails, with long uninterrupted views across the Cotswold countryside and a variety of waymarked routes.

The Tea Pavilion offers ice-creams, drinks and snacks with outside seating and plenty of places for those that chose to bring a picnic.

Newark Park is open daily throughout the summer holidays, 10am - 5pm, with the house open from 11am - 4pm (last entry 3:45pm).
