FAMILY FUN: Bewl Water is perfect for outdoor family adventure

Whether you’re seeking delicious dining experiences or action-packed adventures, this picturesque town has something for everyone. Here’s a rundown of the must-visit places and their offerings for a memorable bank holiday weekend…


Salomons Estate

Nestled amongst 36 acres of lush gardens, Salomons Estate, a charming Victorian country manor house, invites families to enjoy a spot of British tradition this August bank holiday.

For sweet tooths, afternoon tea is available on the terrace or in the manor house conservatory and is served between 12pm and 4pm. It costs from £25 per person and the seasonal menu celebrates the vibrant flavours of an English summer.

Enjoy delicate finger-cut sandwiches, fresh pastries, traditional fruit and vanilla scones, and a sweet selection of sticky, homemade cakes.

If you’re after something heartier, Sunday lunch will be served on August 27. Enjoy panoramic views of the picturesque grounds as you tuck into succulent roasted beef or chicken accompanied by classic sides like Yorkshire puddings and seasonal vegetables. To reserve your table for afternoon tea or Sunday lunch, visit:


The Brasserie

At The Brasserie on Chapel Place, a special offer awaits families seeking a budget-friendly dining experience this bank holiday weekend. As part of their ongoing summer promotion, kids eat for free with each adult meal ordered.

Children can enjoy popular items from the kid’s menu like fish goujons, vegan nuggets, and beef burgers. Paired with crispy fries and a fresh salad, each main course provides a healthy and satisfying option for hungry young appetites. Dessert is also included, and options include a choice of ice cream or pancakes with maple syrup.

Meanwhile, adults can savour an array of modern twists on classic favourites from The Brasserie’s main menu. With a focus on fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, every dish promises a delightful burst of flavour. And as an extra treat, The Brasserie is giving parents a free cocktail.

Bewl Water

For families seeking outdoor adventures, Bewl Water, the largest reservoir in southeast England, offers activities fit for all ages.

Kids can unleash their inner pirate aboard the Adventure Pirate Ship, a free outdoor playground featuring slides, climbing frames, and more. Alternatively, explore the indoor soft play area, perfect for children aged 0-8, to navigate tunnels and engage in stimulating fun. Sessions cost £5 for one hour, while those under 12 months go free.

You can also take a family-friendly stroll around the woodlands, and to keep the kids engaged, a free trail map can be collected from the Waterfront Café. Follow the clues to crack the code, before stopping by the ice cream parlour for a sweet treat.

For those seeking an adrenaline rush, laser tag, the Aqua Park, and water sports such as paddleboarding await. Complete the experience with a relaxing pedalo ride and something to eat from the Waterfront Café.
