Out Walking At Chatelherault Country Park

We have been countless times over the years to Chatelherault Country Park. It is a great place to get the kids outdoors and let them enjoy themselves. There is roughly 10 miles of walks that you can do along the River Avon and through the ancient woodland that surrounds the area. If you are doing one of the walks there are shorter options available.

About Chatelherault

It is a Five Star Visitor Attraction that was once described as a ‘Jewel in the Landscape’. Built in 1732 as a Hunting Lodge and Summer House for the Dukes of Hamilton. The visitor centre is in part of the restored buildings where you can also find the cafe, gift shop and more. If you are looking for a wedding venue then Chatelherault can also offer this option.

There is also a massive play area which we always have great fun on (even when we were kids!) You can also download a Treasure Hunt App from Apple or Google Play. We haven’t done this yet but we may do it the next time we are going to see what it is like.

Food & Drinks

Onsite there is a cafe. Sells various items like soup, cakes, sandwiches, toasties. Not too expensive and they taste good. They can cater for special dietary requirements too. I asked for a sandwich without butter for our youngest and they were happy to go away and make one up for him.

Great day out with the kids. We have been coming here for years and its always great to get outdoors and go for a walk. The scenery is lovely and well worth the walking. If you are bringing a pram you may struggle with it on some parts of the walks. We normally bring a carrier with us so we don’t have to struggle. If you are not doing the walks then you should be fine with your pram. We would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a great friendly day out.
