The great thing about this fun-filled farm is that it has plenty of indoor attractions as well as outdoor, so it’s a great day out whatever the weather.

Guildford Treasure Trail

Treasure trails have become a huge hit with anyone looking to combine countryside trekking with a test of perseverance, investigation and treasure hunting. They are the ideal activity for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors, especially during the autumn.

The trail is around half a mile long and you should probably give yourself around one or two hours to complete it.

You make your way across Guildford, walking through the charming streets and alongside the river. If you fancy taking a break at the halfway mark, there are some beautiful spots to relax at the first checkpoint and the finish line, both of which give you a pleasant view of the river. It’s a good idea to bring along a picnic for the checkpoints, as you can sit on the grass next to the river and enjoy a peaceful lunch.

If you’re wondering where to park, the Millmead House Car Park has plenty of space, although you should be aware that some of the parking areas have a maximum stay of two hours.
