Dumfries House is one of Britain’s most beautiful stately homes. Set in 2,000 acres of land, this stunning estate and 18th-century house with its unrivalled collection of original furniture has something for everyone.
With estate walks, walled gardens, the Chinese bridge and visitor centre and shop to explore this is a way to spend a day. Equally if it’s the kids you’re trying to keep occupied through the holidays then the two adventure playgrounds are sure to tire them out. Work your way through the maze and enjoy a beautiful walk around the grounds before you have a coffee, ice cream, picnic or meal depending on your mood, there are several cafes to choose from.
A new adventure woodland playpark has opened at Cumnock’s Dumfries House, and it hopes to encourage outdoor play and nature-based learning.
Kids and adults alike are keen to get a slice of the fun, as demonstrated by HRH Prince Charles who enjoyed crossing a rope bridge as he officially opened the 300sqm attraction.
The playpark, which utilises the estate’s existing wooded landscape, features a central play tower, racing slides, rope bridges, educational elements and a wooden finger maze, which is a scaled-down replica of the maze at Dumfries House.
The outdoor facility, designed by Creating Adventurous Places, aims to champion the benefits of nature-based play and learning, which The Prince’s Foundation’s are committed to.
A picture perfect spot for all the family to enjoy!
