Get those wellies ready for our February half-term extravaganza! We have planned a healthy mixture of mud and learning for the kids with a little mud and romance for the adults. Our legendary drop-slide will also be open for the whole week, although please be aware that because our bears are in torpor and not active, our bear bridge will not be open. We're looking forward to seeing you!

Spot the wellies!

Our new free trail for kids is an engaging adventure throughout the whole of Wildwood. Starting at the entrance, the little ones will have to solve a clue to figure out the next location of the welly. When they get there, they'll have to find the welly in the distance with a pair of provided binoculours and then note down the letter printed on the side of the welly on their trial page (don't forget to bring a pencil). We have four clues to solve and four wellies to spot in four different areas. All correctly submitted trial pages will be placed in a prize draw to win vouchers to spend anywhere at Wildwood. They can 'meet an animal', buy loads of chocolate or even get themselves a big fluffy wolf. The choice is theirs (or yours)!

* under 16s only
