National Trust days out can be great for the whole family and a wonderful way to make memories. There’s often lots to see, do and explore – from parklands to play areas and beautiful country houses.

If you’re looking for a family adventure or somewhere to visit while you’re on holiday, we hope some of these National Trust days out in the West Midlands will inspire you.



 

Attingham Park

Attingham Park has plenty of parkland to run and play.

Michelle, from Mummy From The Heart, says: “The play field is just as it sounds, a massive fenced and gated area with swings, slides, climbing equipment, natural hills, a fort kind of area, concrete table tennis tables and loads more. It is perfect for imaginative play and there is so much there for the kids to do. We managed to bag a bench and table as there were quite a few dotted around for the adults but also lots of families had taken a large area with blankets and such on the floor for a fun picnic”

Charlecote Park

Charlecote Park has plenty for children to see indoors, including the working kitchen. Outside the landscaped parkland is the perfect place to picnic, explore and watch the fallow deer.

Holly, from Little Pickles Mom, says: “There’s something about a good walk in the fresh air, it’s so restorative! We laughed our way around”

 

Emma, from Bubbablue and Me, says:”We were more interested in the servants quarters which were also open up and set up as they would have been years ago.  In the kitchen N helped get the logs for the open fire, looked at the food in the cupboards, and had a chat with the cook dressed in clothes of the time”

Read Holly’s review of Charecote Park and Emma’s post on exploring Charlecote Park.

 

Croome

Croome‘s wild play area is the perfect spot for children to play and reconnect with the natural world. There is plenty to see and do on the park and seasonal activities are available throughout the year. Head indoors to learn about the house which was once home to a catholic school and hare Krishnas!

Danielle, from Someone’s Mum, says: “There are various trails and activities that you can follow while exploring, including spotting the giant bird sculptures hidden in several huge trees as you make your way through the park”

Natalie, from Plutonium Sox, says: “Today was all about being outdoors, but had the weather not been so great, there were plenty of beautiful things to look at indoors as well”

Brockhampton Estate

Brockhampton Estate is made up of over 1700 acres of woodland, parkland, gardens and orchards so there’s plenty of space to stretch your legs and get up close and personal with nature. Follow the natural play trail for almost a mile of adventures to discover and explore.

Natalie, from Plutonium Sox, says: “Brockhampton is just an ideal place to go on a sunny day like today. There are six walks of varying degrees of difficulty. We did the yellow walk, which was a nice, gentle walk a mile and a half long. It incorporated a big hill that Libby could tick off in her activity book. There was also a pond, open fields and some beautiful woodland, complete with bluebells”

Dudmaston

Dudmaston is a beautiful country house set in over 3000 acres of unspoilt countryside. The house is still a family home, it isn’t perfect and pristine, but is well loved and cared for. There are trails inside and out for the children to discover secrets as they explore.

Emma, from Mrs Shilts, says: “There’s a great wooden playground for children to let off some steam within the Orchard. There’s a slide, big rope swings, a wooden play house and balance beams to hop over. Olly loved playing on the slides and we had so much pretending to play shops in the wooden play house. It’s a great space for children”

Read Emma’s 5 things to do at Dudmaston.

 

Hanbury Hall

Hanbury Hall is a stunning country house just waiting to be explored and there is always something exciting to discover outside in the gardens and surrounding parkland.

Sarah, from Taming Twins, says: “It has everything you need for parents and children, wide open spaces, kids pedal tractors, a playground that’s the stuff three year old dreams are made of, oh and some super scones”

Read Sarah’s review of Hanbury Hall.

 

Packwood House

Packwood House is surrounded by beautiful gardens and countryside. It is the perfect place to spend a day whatever the weather.

Cathy, from Mummy Travels, says: “everywhere you look, there’s a treasure to find, from Jacobean and canopied beds slept in by Queen Mary to chinoiserie. And one of the extra lovely touches for children is to find the handful of Dalmatian statues dotted around the rooms. Even Minnie, at two, had huge fun with trying to spot the ‘spotty doggies’ – as well as being the perfect height to see one of the best concealed ones”

Emma, from Mrs Shilts, says: “The wood at Packwood is a great place for little ones to explore nature. The boys were given a worksheet each to discover leaves and birds around the Packwood which made their visit more exciting”

Upton House

Upton House has a fascinating history and the whole family will love to explore and discover it’s past. Outside there are walks to get the most out of the beautiful countryside and a woodland area with tree stumps to climb and tunnels to explore.

Becky, from Pinks Charming, says: “Ava was really fascinated by the vintage typewriters, though she struggled to press the buttons. We weren’t sure if she’d like looking round the house, but she did, albeit in quite a quick fashion”
