There is a playground near the main entrance off Ragley Drive. It has swings, slides and 2 climbing frames - suitable for kids of all ages.


The Old Rectory Farm has been fully restored and operates as a demonstration farm, showing traditional methods of farming. Animals kept at the farm include Jersey cattle, pigs, goats, ponies, ducks, chickens and geese. The farm is open to visitors every day throughout the year and admission is free.
