Family Week at Monkton Wyld

Advertiser Feature: Family Week at Monkton Wyld Court

Connect with nature in the unique environment of Monkton Wyld Court.
Family Week will focus on fun and educational activities to keep everyone entertained. We have been busy putting together an exciting schedule of activities, so people of all ages can learn, play, and spend quality time together as a family.

The activities on offer include:
Woodworking, Arts and Crafts, Science, Problem Solving, Nature-based activities, Nature walks, Foraging, cooking, bushcraft.

What will we be doing?
We’ll have activities such as pizza making, foraging, graffiti, drumming, a wool workshop, yoga, and using our pedal-powered smoothie maker. There will be plenty of getting-to-know-you games, and a family challenge to allow people to work as a team. We will visit the picturesque town of Charmouth, and go fossil hunting on the world-famous Jurassic Coast. We will also introduce you to Monkton Wyld’s famous nocturnal resident, The Lesser Horseshoe Bat. These fascinating creatures have graced the cobbled courtyard for as long as anyone can remember, and our bat expert will answer any questions relating to this unique species of wildlife.

In the evenings there will be stories and music around a campfire, and on the first night, our pizza chef will serve up delicious pizzas using organic ingredients cooked in a cob-made pizza oven. We will also introduce you to our resident lesser horseshoe bats, and we’ll set up a moth trap and see who visits.

Optional holistic massages will be available for parents.
