Parents looking for affordable and safe ways to entertain their children this summer can turn to a Midlands stately home for an array of indoor and outdoor play activities.

Set in 1,000 acres of open parkland Weston Park is a woodland fantasy, adventure playground and stately home all rolled into one and has opened its gates to families for 2010 (Saturday 29th May – Sunday 5th September).

Children can go wild in the adventure playground, explore the countless woodland trails and lakes by foot or bike and discover the Medieval Deer Park and Hermits Cave. Just when you are running out of puff along comes the miniature railway that steams towards Temple Wood and more wildlife.

The Children’s Activity Centre located in the Stables Courtyard, with summer weather as unpredictable as ever, the sheltered area is full of fun things to do including drawing, dressing up and playing games. There are a variety of trail cards to be picked up to help explore the parkland.

Refreshments are available in the Stables Coffee Bar including homemade cakes and sandwiches. For a more substantial lunch the recently opened Granary Grill will sizzle up local cuts of meat, offer light bites and salads as well as homemade puddings.

The Granary Farm Shop and in-house Butchery offers families locally sourced produce plus monthly exhibitions in the Art Gallery.

Colin Sweeney, Weston Park’s chief executive said: “Weston Park has been described as the Midland’s best kept secret for a family day out, but it’s a secret we want to share with families. During the long school holidays Weston Park can provide a great day out for all.”
Weston Park opens for the summer on Saturday May 29th daily through to Sunday 5th September. Park and Gardens are open from 10.30am to 6pm whilst the House is open from 1pm – 5pm and is closed on Saturdays.

Park and Gardens admission: Adults £5.00, Children £3.00 and Seniors £4.50. A family ticket is £20.00 (2+3) and includes House entry.

To help plan a day out families can download a map of the estate or the easy to view on-line events programme to find out what Weston has planned for the rest of the year.
