Compton Acres for Half-Term Animals Fun

Animals to be spotted at Compton Acres this February half-term

Children visiting Compton Acres this February half-term will have to keep their eyes peeled for owls, deer and foxes as they explore the historic Grade-II listed gardens at the leading Dorset attraction.

From Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 February, 10am to 4pm, Compton Acres will host an animal trail, challenging mini adventurers to find an array of hidden creatures in the 10-acre gardens. Equipped only with a map, children keen to discover the animals will journey through wooded valleys, under towering trees and travel as far as Italy and Japan in the attraction’s themed gardens.

After the children have searched Compton Acres’ historic gardens for hidden creatures, they will be able to make a stop at the attraction’s model railway and join in with a wildlife quiz. Families can then relax within the Sorridi restaurant or enjoy shopping at the Ark shop or the craft and garden centres.

Kaye Merna, managing director at Compton Acres, says: “The gardens provide an ideal setting for a fun and educational hunt. It provides a great opportunity for children to explore the variety of gardens at Compton Acres and we look forward to welcoming families during half-term.”
