Children & Families
The spectacular woodlands, ponds, meadows, reeds and river that form the 550 acre Sharpham Estate are a perfect setting for outdoor adventures, camp fires, story telling and environmental art. Family and community are at the heart of the Sharpham Trust’s work, with many public events specifically aimed at providing families with opportunities to share time together in this beautiful setting.
Our forest school (including ‘Into the woods’ and the Spring/Summer Explorers) and family programmes are focused on an exploration of the natural environment through different skills and senses and an awareness of the importance of sustainability and focus on the individual.
Our Estate Open Days welcome families, with numerous activities and places along the river and in the woods to explore together. We also have an on-going calendar of public events designed to offer families the chance to visit Sharpham, as well as the chance to have a very special outdoors birthday party or celebration at Sharpham.

In the words of our visitors
- Absolutely loved Sharpham and I would definitely go back, it's a beautiful place! For me the whole experience was great! I especially loved setting the badger traps, I found that incredibly interesting. I would really like to follow their progress with the inoculation programme.
