The beautiful setting of Wassand Hall is the ideal place for a familly visit. Our secluded estate has woodlands, natural ponds, a stumpery and a bird hide overlooking Hornsea Mere. It attracts a huge variety of birds, animals and insects that can be found, spotted, identified and classified. The Arboretum is home to over seventy interesting trees including three Champion trees, mature specimens and younger saplings. They provide an excellent resource to inspire children’s imagination and questioning skills.
OPEN DAY ACTIVITIES
On Open Days activities for children will be provided at the admission hut with instructions. These are self-led and will encourage children to observe and look for clues or objects around the walks and the grounds. Parent supervision is necessary and we suggest children follow the Countryside Code ‘Respect, Protect and Enjoy.’ Please ensure that flowers are not picked and litter is taken home.
On open days children under 10 are free. No need to book, turn up on the day.
SUMMER HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES
During August, half day courses will be provided for children and parents to take part (maximum two children with one adult) age range 5-10 year olds. Booking is essential, details and costs will be displayed here or follow Helen Byass @Wassand Hall on twitter for updates.
Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts groups are welcome to use the woodland area and activities can be planned to enable them to gain badges. This can be arranged with the Education and Environment Warden.
All group visits and Holiday Activity Sessions must be booked in advance. Prices include a staff pre-visit with the Wassand Hall Education Warden to discuss your specific requirements, answer any questions and introduce you to the Wassand environment.
