On your next luxury holiday, why not pack up a bag and spend your day exploring acres of stunning woodland at Thorp Perrow Gardens and Arboretum? There's a great range of activities to entertain the children including an adventure play area and birds of prey and mammal centre where you can meet exotic birds and animals all less than 30 minutes drive from any of our luxury holiday homes across Richmond, North Yorkshire.
Autumn is the perfect time to visit Thorp Perrow and witness the leaf colour changes which set the woodland ablaze with a variety of reds, gold, orange and brown at one of the largest collections of shrubs and trees in the North of England. Look out for the many seasonal events that are on throughout the year too, throughout October you can spot many spooky antics on the Halloween trail throughout the site!
Explore the Bird of Prey centre, housed within a walled garden, where a huge collection of birds of prey and exotic species from every continent in the world give visitors the opportunity to learn more about these fascinating creatures. There are also regular flying displays where you can get a chance to meet the birds up close! Situated alongside the birds is the Mammal centre where you can spot meerkats on Meerkat Island or wander through Wallaby Wood to feed, stroke and pet the wallabies.
The adventure playground will keep the kids entertained for hours with swings, zip-line, slides and an adventurous assault course to enjoy. Afterwards treat yourselves to a mouth-watering selection of seasonal lunches, treats and hot and cold drinks at the Tea Rooms. Highchairs and a range of baby weaning foods are available for the smallest of visitors.
