Review: Hatchlands Park – National Trust

We are making our way around so many National Trust places with our membership and our most recent adventure was Hatchlands Park near Guildford, Surrey. Hatchlands Park is well sign posted and has a lot of parking making it perfect for a day out.

Hatchlands Prak consists of the main house – which opens at 2pm so sadly we didn’t get to venture inside, as well as the house grounds and a lot of land around the house – hills, trees, benches to sit on and even a little forest to walk through with a little adventure den inside.

Little Man loved this area although I’d imagine that it gets really busy at peak times and there isn’t a huge amount for children to do although Little Man was happy to balance, step across stepping stones and climb a little.

After the adventure playground we followed the Sylvanian Families Nature Trail which had questions to answer and took you on a route through the woods. There were carved Sylvanian figures at different points and Little Man loved finding the signs as we went along.

We then went and had tea and cake in the cafe – a must at any National Trust site – and then had a look in the shop before heading home.The cafe, shop and toilets are all situated around a really lovely courtyard which is a perfect place to just stop and take a moment.

If you have a free day Hatchlands Park has a lot of outdoors to explore, many places for picnics and the cafe is lovely. There wasn’t a huge amount for children to do but if they love just having a wander and getting some fresh air then they’ll love Hatchlands Park.
