We are happy to run activities for families who stay at Holyford. These can either be for the whole family to enjoy together or just for the children to give parents some time to relax on their own…

Activities we can offer:

Making marmalade
Pizza baking in the earth oven this is a great activity to take place on the day you arrive. It means you don’t have to think about what to eat as soon as you unpack and you can really relax and enjoy where you are. It’s also a great introduction to using the Earth oven so you can use it with confidence during your stay.
Make your own apple juice this is a fun activity for all the family as there are lots of stages involved from crushing to pressing and bottling. Take home a couple of bottles for a special souvenir.
Bake bread / cake
Weaving learn to make a willow flower or dragonfly to take home with you. For the really enthusiastic learn how to weave a simple willow basket. Using New Zealand flax learn how to make a flax flower or a chunky bracelet.
Bushcraft fire lighting, campfire cooking, shelter building.
