Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa is in the heart of Somerset, offering fantastic walking adventures in the countryside, five star facilities and fun family local attractions to visit! With a full Go Active+ programme, plus an indoor entertainment area, you won’t need to leave the park to have a fun filled half term, but if you do choose to venture out into the local area, I have found the family fun things to do in Cheddar this half term!
the love walk
Where: Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm
When: 11th – 25th Feb
This is a fun guided walk with a special animal experience thrown in, the perfect family fun time or a couples’ escape to the zoo. The animal experience includes a feeding experience with one of the famous animal couples in the zoo, the free guided walk meets outside the food barn courtyard daily at 2pm, and you’ll discover the true love, rivalry and interesting animal facts of the many zoo couples, such as does Tara the snoring Tapir keep Toby up all night? Or has Gerald the Giraffe really had enough of Genevieve? There is also Love Craft Family Workshops to try out too, where you make a cool paper animal face from love hearts that you can take home, as well as face painting and a special ‘Selfie Spot’ with a heart shaped picture frame for that perfect selfie!
