Welcome to The Bear Trail

Brand new kids adventure trail for all the family

He who Bears…Wins!

About The Bear Trail

The Bear Trail is a brand new outdoor children’s adventure trail. It provides a site for children…(and adults!) to run, jump and climb. There are a series of obstacles which involve stepping across bear infested mud pits, tumbling through the bear tunnels and climbing bear mountain!

Take on the Challenge

The concept has been conceived in order to provide children with a space to invent play and be tested so they work together and push their boundaries. We believe children should have a chance to run free out in the wild, challenge themselves mentally and physically, get wet, run and climb around in muddy fields and experience an element of risk which reflects life; The Bear Trail encompasses all of this, but in a safe environment. We do ask parents/guardians that there is one person over the age of 21 present on the trail for a maximum of 6 children. 

Facilities

Free car-park: to avoid disappointment, please book a slot on the trail using our online booking system
Picnic area – we all know you can’t beat mum’s sandwiches!
Baby changing facilities onsite
Outdoor wash point but bring spare clothes and appropriate footwear
We welcome schools and large groups, and even birthday parties! Please enquire on the contacts page.
We love our four legged friends so feel free to bring your dogs on leads! We do stress that there is no such thing as a dog poo fairy so please pick up after them!

Get Muddy!

There is a path for bears who don’t like getting their paws wet…However for the more adventurous there are stepping stones across mud pits, and nets across rivers. Mud washes off… experiences stay forever!

The Trail is for all ages. There is a ‘cubs corner’ for children under 1 metre, but we have two year olds tackling the main trail, along with 14 year old teenagers, along with 70 year old grandparents! It really is for ALL THE FAMILY!

Refresh

When the cubs and bears are tired, there is a Bear Cave Café providing hot and cold delights. We have a traditional wood fired pizza oven which is lit everyday in the school holidays and on the weekend during term times. Here is the pizza (9”) menu:

  • Margarita           –     £5.50
  • Pepperoni          –     £6.00
  • Hawaiian           –     £6.00
  • Vegetarian         –     £6.00
  • BBQ Chicken     –     £6.50
  • Meat Feast     –    £7.00
  • Sandwiches
  • Cakes

There is an outdoor shower where you can get most the mud off and toilets to change in.

No, the ticket is for all day (10:00 – 1700/ dusk if earlier)

Yes, you can turn up at any time. You can return to your car at any point all day and keep entering the Trail.
If I am only watching, do I have to pay to get in?
Yes, it is an admission fee like all attractions. We have had much feedback from adults who have enjoyed being involved as a family and that it is a very rewarding day out.
Are there any concessions?
Yes, there are concessions of a price reduction of £1 off the normal price. This relates to seniors, pregnancy, disabled and disabled carers (1 carer per disabled admission).
Do I have to book?
You can either book or pay on the ticket office on the day. When it is busy (school holidays), we would recommend booking due to the bookings have guaranteed placing and the rest would be on availability on the day.
Do I have to print my ticket?

No, it is completely free. We would ask that the car park is maintained for the use of The Bear Trail only.

It is up to you but generally people spend between 2-4 hours.
