Little Eden for under-fives with their parent, grandparent or carer

A weekly club for under-fives with their parent, grandparent or carer, set in Eden’s magical wild perimeters, where together we celebrate the great outdoors through games and stories, quests and hunts, making and creating, and campfire cooking.

This club for parents, grandparents, carers and their under-fives is designed to help children and their families play and learn together through outdoor games and activities.


What sort of things we get up to

Each week we meet in beautiful ancient fields and woodland on Eden’s outer estate for an hour and a half, where we’ll get you and your child involved in games and stories, quests and treasure hunts, making and creating things, and even campfire cooking activities.

You can see what we've been up to previously on our Little Eden Facebook page.

“ There is always a selection of activities like bubbles, a mud kitchen and crafts and Jasmine loves toasting marshmallows on the fire. ”

Who it’s for

Where do sessions take place?

The sessions are set at the magical Little Carne Farm, in Eden’s wider estate. (We’ll send you directions once you’ve booked.) We plan to be outside every week unless the weather is dangerously bad. We have a wonderful shelter around our fire, so a bit of drizzle is no problem. We also have a composting loo.

When you book we'll send you joining instructions by email.
