Autumnal Activities

Bushcraft pursuits

Embrace the natural cycle of the seasons with some warming, bushcraft pursuits. If you’re feeling a little chilly, come and warm yourself by our campfire and toast a marshmallow* (or two) or build a den big enough for your family and friends to huddle inside. We will also be searching for creepy crawlies at this time of year in our bug hunting sessions.

Pick your own pumpkin at Sacrewell

Roam around our field and scout out the best pumpkin*. Once you’ve chosen yours, you can take it to our ‘Paint-a-Pumpkin’ workshop where our friendly staff will help you design your own work of (pumpkin) art.

 

Farmer’s Young Apprentice *New for 2017*

Get a taste of farm life with some hands on experience at Sacrewell. You might be fixing broken fencing or tidying the stable yard, feeding and mucking out the animals, or learning how we ensure the animals at Sacrewell get the best treatment. The very nature of farm life means that you really could be doing anything in your session, so please come prepared for all weather and wear suitable clothing.

Sessions will be led by our Animal Manager Jess and her team and are suitable for children aged between 5 and 16. The slots last two hours and are available from 10am until 12pm, or 2pm until 4pm on certain days during the half term week. Reserve your session online for £10 a child, there are 8 places available per session!
