Door 23: Follow the play trail at Greystones farm

Posted: Friday 23rd December 2016 by Community

Put on your hat and mittens and head to Greystones farm Wild Play trail for some frosty fun

Greystones is a wonderful reserve, rich in wildlife, history and archaeology. It’s mostly flat, so it’s easy walking, and it’s close to the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water where there is a large car park, and lots of shops and cafes. But when you get on to Greystones Farm, you could be a million miles from town.

It’s a brilliant place to bring very excited children. There are lots of things to see, and a safe shallow stream to paddle in – even in winter in Wellies! And our fab new play equipment made from wood from our own reserve at Lower Woods, and carved by a local craftsman.

Feel free to let them clamber all over the climbing frame, and see how many animals, and birds and snakes and plants they can spot! Then go across the fields to Green Lane where a friendly snake is happy to be a tight-rope pole, a rope is there to be swung on, stepping stones to be balanced on, and even some woods where you can build dens to your heart’s content.

Get the kids out and active. They’ll love it, and so will you.
