"We actually had the idea for The Playhive long before Covid hit," said Mr Grant. "The lockdown has just reconfirmed our commitment to the project. Now more than ever, our tourism sector needs to come back fighting, and after the isolation and anxieties of the last year, families desperately need to get away and have some fun.” The tourism business at Stockeld Park was started by the Grants in 2006 and pioneered the use of illuminations and tableaux imaginatively presented in the estate forests. The aim was to attract visitors at Christmas time and increasing retail sales of Nordman Fir Christmas trees of which Stockeld Park was one of the country’s largest growers. The initiative grew into the Christmas Adventure, which now features epic winter illuminations in its Enchanted Forest, a giant eight-foot-high Yew tree maze, a 1.2km Nordic Ski Trail and ice-rink. It usually attracts more than 100,000 visitors every Christmas. Use our tool below to find virtual events
The family attraction has gone from strength to strength and is now considered one of Yorkshire’s most popular family attractions, adding an Easter Adventure, Spring Adventure, Summer Adventure, Halloween Adventure and February Fun to its offering. In 2019 over 200,000 guests visited Stockeld Park over the course of the year. Download the YorkshireLive app to customise the news that matters to you and get the latest updates first.
