Lower Shaw Farm is planning a week of fun activities for the whole family.

The Family Activity Holiday week will start after 4pm on Sunday 15 August and run until mid-morning on Sunday 22.

A spokesperson for the event said: "This is a week for people of all ages. We will do things, make things, and have a lot of fun. Mornings are likely to be spent art and crafting it in the big shed, while the afternoons will be filled with games, outings, and walking trips.

"Evenings will find us round the campfire, telling tales or reading a good book, together, singing songs, and watching stars. And those are only the official bits! The rest is determined by who comes, who connects, and who makes things happen."

Itineraries in previous years included juggling, philosophy, board games galore, origami, creative writing, pizza making, a cabaret, campfire cooking, walks, yoga, sauna, riding on the vintage red tractor, and more.

The farm team says its Family Activity Holiday is a perennially popular high-summer week of high action and laid back inaction. The aim is for children to experience both freedom and structure, while adults can enjoy the companionship of other adults, as well as having fun and learning new skills alongside their children.

The week-long experience will include lots of crafts and games plus all meals and snacks. The farm has a giant rope swing and hammock in the barn, farm animals to feed, and campfires in the evenings.

The cost is £360 per adult, £225 per child aged 2 years and over. There is no admission charge for babies.
