Brentwood In The Spring!

The weather is certainly beginning to change, which means much more time outside in the open and let’s face it, that’s never a bad thing. So, for our guests here at Marygreen Manor, we thought we’d compile a list of fun and fantastic things to do in and around Brentwood for those staying with their families. Believe us when we say, you won’t run out of things to do in our famous town, that’s for sure.

Hopefield Animal Sanctuary – with a very famous friend who goes by the name of Leona Lewis, Hopefield Animal Sanctuary is possibly one of the biggest charities in Brentwood and the perfect day out for the animal lovers amongst us. Not only will you get to spend time with every animal imaginable, from horses to pigs, goats to lizards and even a lamb born only a few weeks ago, but you’ll also get to help support the charity by rummaging through their brand new on-site pet shop and enjoying a cup of tea and a bite to eat in their on-site café too.

King Georges Playing Fields – King George’s playing fields are great for kids of all ages. Having only recently under gone quite a transformation, this family park now boasts everything from a skate park to an amazing mini-golf and even a huge park too. From toddler swings to larger play sets, this place has everything you could need for a fun day out. There’s even a “café in the park” offering hot food and drink too for those chillier spring days.

Thorndon Country Park – Thorndon country park is quite simply huge! This wooded area has become famous in Brentwood for it’s fantastic Gruffalo trail and has children of all ages searching for him every weekend. You’ll even find an Easter egg hunt or two here in April so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for details on that soon. One of the best bits about this forest – you don’t actually have to get muddy if you don’t want to. There are pathways all around Thorndon offering you a clean(er) walk through the forest although we’d still advise leaving the Chanel espadrilles at home though. Here you’ll find cows and even horses grazing in surrounding fields making it the perfect spring time stroll location.

Colmar Farm Riding School – looking to take up a new sport? Maybe try something a little different? Or perhaps you’re looking to jump back in the saddle again and see if it all comes flooding back? Either way, Colmar Farm Riding School is a BHS recognised riding school that offers you the chance to enjoy riding lessons as well as hacks over the nearby park – South Weald park. There’s nothing quite like a wander through South Weald with the bluebells in full bloom.

Brentwood Karting – last but not least with the Brentwood karting centre. This is great for the speed demons amongst us. Here you’ll be able to race around the track, against the clock, competing against family and friends. What’s more, it’s just a stones throw away from Marygreen Manor.

What more could you want in the town surrounding our fabulous hotel. With so much to see and do, and a luxury room to kick back in when you’re finished for the day, Marygreen Manor and the wonderful town of Brentwood, pretty much has it all.
