Things to do
Get the kids to leave iPads and other electronic devices at home and let them roam free! Our new play area which was installed in April 2022 is situated in the Bottom Field. We also have a willow tunnel at the far end of the New Field. Of course, there is plenty of space for young ones to jump on their bikes and explore, kick a ball around or head to the woods for den building, nature trails and hide and seek. Collect a nature trail booklet from the shop or reception so that the kids don't miss out!
Nature Safari runs 'Dens and Campfires' sessions over the spring/summer season in the private woodland area. This involves a den building competition followed by cooking tasty snacks on the campfire! Children also get a goodie bag to take away. Sessions are suitable for 6-11 year olds and cost £8 per child. Parents are welcome to join in but aren't needed to supervise. Booking in advance strongly recommended.
Crafty Devilz visit the park in August and help us perfect our circus skills! Learn how to spin plates, juggle, blow giant bubbles along with many other tricks. A free event for park guests. Please see our events calendar for dates.
New for 2022, Yorkshire Muddings will be hosting Forest School Club where children aged 0-11 years can take part in nature crafts, den building and campfire food! £10 per child (under 7s must be accompanied by an adult). Bookings must be made at least 7 days in advance online www.bookwhen.com/YorkshireMuddings.
Dogs are very welcome and the surrounding woodland is ideal for walking, however we do strictly ask that they are kept on a lead on the park at all times. With or without a dog, the woods are just a starting point for lots more walks from the park (although a dog may come in handy to pull you up the hills here!) If you prefer shorter walks with a pub at the end, Brockholes village with The Rock Inn serving tasty food at great prices is an 8 minute stroll away down the lane or along the riverside through the woods. The Travellers Rest is an extra 5 minutes walk on from The Rock Inn and serves good food. The Jacobs Well is worth going slightly further for though - delicious food with a friendly welcome (humans and dogs!) For ideas about walking routes, we have plenty of information in the shop. You could even bring your GPS for geo-caching – there are a couple waiting to be discovered around the park. A great way to encourage the kids to get out walking!
If you’re into angling there is plenty of fishing to be done here with our small lake taking centre stage and the River Holme running around the park. Whatever you decide to do here on the park, the ducks are always looking for a snack! We sell duck feed in the shop especially for our friendly campsite pets!
Every year we have some fantastic local food vans on site and we've got a treat for you in 2022! The Scholes Chippy team are back and serving up their delicious fare on selected Saturdays throughout the season around 4pm - 7pm. Voted No. 1 Chippy in Yorkshire this year, a percentage of their profits go to charity. Listen out for the chippy bus horn! Please see our food calendar for dates.
