Children’s Activities

Paxton House is the ideal place to keep the whole family happy.

There are many walks to suit even the youngest adventurers with paths through woodland, by the river, through the Well Garden or in the formal gardens with lots of opportunity to spot wildlife. To earn a special certificate younger visitors will enjoy our teddy trail. Just ask in the shop and we will be happy to point you in the right direction.

An exciting adventure playground sits nestled in the heart of the grounds, with lots of fun to be had burning off energy. There is a long slide, swings, climbing frames, a tower and a wonderful zip wire which is enjoyed by children big and small!

Putting and croquet are enjoyed on the Regency Lawn by young and old alike. Children can dress up in Georgian and Regency type costumes to go on the tour of the house and once inside they can hunt for the teddy bears hiding in most of the rooms.

During the school holidays Paxton House offers a wide and varied activity programme – please check the events  page to see what’s on next.
