Our offer:

  • Nature Trail – a self-guided ‘Plant life at Coultershaw’ will be available in 2015 for free at the front desk.


  • Nature Trails – as there are different things to see and do at different times of the year we have two family trails. One for the spring and summer ‘Discover Coultershaw Nature Trail’ and one for autumn/ winter ‘Tree Detectives’. These are available for FREE from the front desk.
  • Family Activity Days – come and join us in October for our Big Draw event.



  • Explore Coultershaw – is an exciting way for your school to discover the nature, geography and history of Coultershaw. Aimed at primary schools the adaptable and flexible session can be delivered by our education volunteers as a whole day or half-day depending on your needs. Have a look at an example of a session.
