Once you’ve visited Haigh Woodland Park you’ll come back time and time again. Why? Because we’ve got a day out, that’s worth a trip out. There’s 250 acres of park and woodland with magnificent views across the Douglas Valley to the Welsh Hills.
For those with a head for heights our aerial adventure is something you’ll never forget.
But if you want something closer to the ground our free fantastic adventure playground should still leave kids ko’d in the car on the way home.
Our brand new crazy golf course is a perfect, fun family way to enjoy the game but if you want something a little more challenging there’s our splendid 18 and 9 Hole Courses. The Kitchen Courtyard is crammed with artisan food and drink producers including a bakery, chocolatier, ice cream parlour and café.
And that’s not half of it. There’s a miniature railway where you can hop on board to the beautiful walled gardens, a packed programme of events throughout the year and a gallery where children can have fun with arts and crafts.
We also organise Wild Camps where kids can learn bushcraft skills like fire lighting a making shelters while our quarry is available for more serious climbers.
Walks and cycle routes criss-cross the entire estate. Take time to spot the wildlife, enjoy the flora and fauna, chill and watch the hugely popular British Saddleback pigs who are helping bring back the natural flora and fauna of the woodland by rooting up and munching though invasive roots and seeds.
There’s so much to see and do and we haven’t even mentioned the magnificent Haigh Hall Hotel currently being developed at the centre of it all.
