Nature Trail  A walk around the reserve looking at several different habitats and thinking about the plants and animals that live there.

Toad Hole Cottage Museum Children step back in time when they go into our Victorian marshman’s cottage museum.

Thatching a hands on experience giving children a chance to work together and get to grips with this traditional craft. (Suitable for year 2+)

Environmental Art getting creative and making woodland masterpieces.

Hawks and Blackbirds– A dynamic educational food chain game giving children a clear understanding of food chains and predator prey relationships.


This year we are luckily enough to have the Wherry Hathor with us during June and July and we will be offering ‘Local History’ days including going aboard Hathor, a visit to Toad Hole Cottage Museum and thatching.

A big thank you to everyone who has visited our tearoom this season. The tearoom made over £20,000 – that’s a lot of slices of Bridget the cook’s fantastic home made cakes! This money goes directly towards supporting the educational work of the How Hill Trust.
