Berrington Hall – National Trust site in Leominster (Herefordshire)

Berrington Hall in Leominster, Herefordshire was featured in our Top 5 National Trust Sites for Under 10s. It is a house oozing with nobility – probably due to it being one of the first houses designed by renowned architect, Henry Holland. The house is full to the brim with beautiful decorations and furniture and is surrounded by sweeping lawns.

Family events are held throughout the year, so even the youngest of guests can get stuck in. Take a tour around the house and explore the servants’ quarters, try on a costume or put your knowledge to the test in the house quiz. There’s also a children’s guide for those who like to go it alone!

For tiny tots – why not toddle around on one of the way-marked estate walks? There’s so much outdoor space, the little ones will love to let off a bit of a steam. There is also a new children’s play area with a fabulous willow tunnel. Baby changing facilities are available on site and there’s the option to loan baby slings and seats too.
