Hide and Secrets playground at Burghley House near Stamford opens





Burghley House was bustling with visitors as a new adventure playground opened at the site.

A re-discovered woodland at the stately home near Stamford has been transformed into a play attraction.

And visitors took the first chance they could to visit the Hide and Secrets playground, with tickets for the attraction sold out over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Some families had travelled from as far as Sheffield for a bank holiday weekend day out, but most visitors were from Stamford.

It combines play, exploration, and discovery with six family play zones and a hidden towers structure.

The hidden towers have two big slides, climbing walls, wobbly walkways and crawl tunnels.

The drop slide has been a big hit, with parents and carers telling staff at Burghley House that their children had spent hours on a loop around the towers and down the slide.

There are also sky-high bug towers, giant mole hills, den making woodland facilities and a huge wooden magpie’s nest.

Tickets are available for the new attraction online, which also offer admission to Burghley’s two gardens – the Tudor inspired garden of surprises and the sculpture garden.

Miranda Rock of Burghley House said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that after many months of hard work our new ‘Hide and Secrets’ is open.

“This has been a collaboration between many parties, and I think we have created something truly unique and distinctly Burghley.

“We are all so proud of the results and will take great pleasure in the enjoyment it will bring to our young visitors and their families.”
