    Sit with The Lost Boys in the Enchanted Forest for songs and campfire stories

Discover the tepees in the Enchanted Forest where children can make Indian head bands with Tiger Lily and the Indian Chief.

Learn to fly like Peter Pan on the bungee trampolines and learn to be a fairy with Tinkerbell.

The Magician will be performing magic throughout the day with characters from Neverland.

Watch the exciting sword fights when the Lost Boys battle with the Pirates!

The birds of prey flying displays will also take place twice a day and the canal boat will run between the gardens and Crusoe’s World in the Enchanted Forest.

‘Have a go Archery’ will take place every day (subject to weather) in collaboration with Arcus Archery.  Children over six and adults can take part in an archery session with an expert instructor.  The cost will be £5 for 10 arrows or £10 for an hour-long instructor-led session, which can be booked on arrival.

Watch the majestic peacocks from the Peacock Bistro and stroll round the lovely gardens which overlook the attractive moated 17th century manor house.   Children will love the giant chess set and the secret garden with streams that feed the moat.
