Priory Farm Discovery Walk
Priory Farm Family Day Out

Open all year, Discovery Land is the perfect place for healthy outdoor activity with family and friends.

A family nature trail with surprises around every corner! Venture along our way-marked walk through ancient woodland, green pastures, meadows and around our fishing lakes.

Discovery Land changes with the seasons; from cheerful daffodils and summer sunflowers, to frosty cobwebs on our spooky halloween trail, the walk is different every time you visit and is enjoyed by many of our returning customers time and time again.

Discovery Land tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Beautiful countryside at the Priory Farm Discovery Walk
For 2021, a number of new exciting additions have been made to our family nature trail, welcoming our new guardians Fern, Timber and Pebble to the Priory Farm family. Deep in the woods, you’ll find Timber’s new treetop home which he can’t wait to share with you all!
Our educational nature trails are designed especially for children; prompting them to discover interesting facts about the surrounding wildlife and trees.
You’ll find a picture-based one suitable for younger children and a fact-gathering quiz for nature detectives up to around 12 years old (but secretly enjoyed by teens and grown-ups too). As your young ones rush from clue to clue, you can take in the splendid views over the South Downs.

As you head off on your adventure....

…up in the distance, high on the hill, you’ll see our Giant’s Chair. Take a seat and you really are the king or queen of the castle! Stop for a moment to admire the views, then rush off over the wibbly wobbly bridge, down to Fern’s house. 
Make sure that you don’t miss our fairy city as you wind your way along the woodland walk, which is carpeted with bluebells in the spring.
Down at the lake, you’ll find our hungry fish. Ring the bell and watch as the water becomes alive with hundreds of carp, ready to be fed! Don’t forget to buy some of our approved fish food at the entrance.
You’ll no doubt come across our resident guinea fowls on your visit, which are sure to keep everyone entertained. Did you know a group of guinea fowl is called a confusion? You’ll see why when you meet our feathered friends!
After all that fresh air and fun, you’ll be ready for a sit down and a bite to eat. You can call in at Wendy’s where you can grab an ice cream for the kids and a reviving coffee for Mum and Dad. Wendy’s is open every day, weather permitting.

The Discovery Walk is a fun 2 hour walk with fantastic views and activities for all ages. You could easily spend a long time here. There's lots to explore and climb on, a hill to roll down and fish to feed! We were all delighted to find that fairies had moved in to Bluebell Wood. Thank you Priory Farm for another lovely afternoon.

Great place to visit for families or friends. They kept it interesting for the kids as the walk around with questions to answer and play equipment along the way. It was pouring with rain when we went but we still managed to enjoy it.

Halloween spooky trail on the Discovery Walk was great fun, just the right length for our toddler and four year old. We also popped into the Farm Shop and got fresh products from shop - great pies and meat! Lovely family day out - highly recommend, we will be back for sure.

A fantastic place for all the family, plenty for youngsters to do and see. The nature trail is informative and a suitable length for little legs to manage (the route is still push chair friendly) and the kids certainly won't get bored (climbing and scrambling and tunneling and exploring to be had at every corner) price wise it was very reasonable, although everything is extra. But all in all I (and the kids) can't wait for the next visit! 🙂
