Family visits

Go wild in the country

Discover our amazing maze or set their imaginations free in our rustic play area and quirky follies. Run free, play hide and seek, and explore to your heart’s content. Most of our paths are made of deliciously soft bark chippings – so no more grazed knees – and we promise never to tell you to shh, or to keep off the grass (unless safety is involved!).  You can even bring your dogs (provided you keep them on a lead). The Garden is best explored on foot, it is not suitable for bikes and scooters.

Our family visitors love:

Our amazing maze

Not only does it have three centres, but its hillside position means grown-ups can direct from above.

Our holiday children’s trails

Perfect for five to ten year olds, our fun, children’s trails contains fascinating facts and challenging clues, so you can learn together and explore the Garden.

Our rustic play area

Complete with a woodland swing, climbing frame, balance logs and even its own wooden folly!

Our fairytale castle

Carved into a beech tree in our woodland glade, our beautiful fairytale castle is inspired by Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria. Can you find it?

Our quirky follies

…or ‘the magical houses’ as they’ve been called – are just perfect for hide and seek.

Our friendly Café

Our temporary Café is a great place to get your breath back after an afternoon playing chase or tag. There’s currently a simplified range of delicious options from hot chocolate, to yummy cakes and snacks.

Painswick Rococo Garden is easy to reach
