bosinver-adventure-trail-pack

We worked with Bosinver Farm Cottages, luxury self-catering holiday cottages in Cornwall, to create a trail for their guests.

 

Bosinver are winners of the Visit England Award for Family Friendly Accommodation of the Year 2017. They

have many guests that return year after year, and to keep their guests happy, they are continually coming

up with fresh ideas to entertain and indulge them.

 

Working closely with Bosinver, we creating a trail that took their guests on a journey around the local village, finding out about the mining history, stories from wartime and interesting characters, like the famous artist who lived in the farmhouse. There were things to collect in the little bag, snippets of cornish language and puzzles to work out.

 

Bosinver also stock our Spotty Dog Trails in their shop and Nanny Pat has kindly written a series of blog posts about them.

Pinetum Gardens, in St Austell, wanted to update their existing trails and make them more accessible to families. We created a leaflet with a simplified map of the gardens and a trail interpreting the things to find, with a sticker as the prize on completion

Enys Gardens, near Penryn, opened their season this year with an Easter Egg Trail, designed by us. Every child entry to the garden included a trail map. Using the map to guide them around the garden, they then had to identify the giant Easter egg characters.
