Dad's love exploring and joining in with the array of nature and wildlife experiences on offer at the 700-acre reserve at Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham, and Father's Day is the perfect opportunity for dad's and grandads to get closer to nature with their families as they will receive free admission when accompanied by one full paying guest.

Treat dad to a day in the great outdoors and spend precious time together with a stroll around Pensthorpe's glorious gardens, take your binoculars and spot some wildlife, go pond dipping and watch a daily bird feed. With sightings of bittern, marsh harrier and many species of butterflies, who knows what you will spot! Plus, stop-off and see the red squirrels and flock of flamingos.

After a busy day spent exploring the natural beauty on offer, catch up over a delicious Sunday roast or afternoon tea in the Courtyard Café. And, if you book afternoon tea, dad gets a 25 per cent off voucher to spend in the Gift Shop that day*.

Plus, hop into a Land Rover for an 'off road' behind the scenes tour experience on the Pensthorpe Explorer** and go on a self-guided sculpture trail.

Dad's can also be 'big kids' and join in with their little ones in the popular outdoor adventure play area, WildRootz, swinging from zip-wires, scaling 30ft towers and flying down the slides!

Bill Jordan, owner of Pensthorpe Natural Park comments: "For dads and grandads who want to have a quiet day exploring the outer reaches of the reserve, the bird hides, Wildflower Meadows and nearly 1,000 different species on offer, and enjoy the calming effect of nature, or those who want to bring a mixture of ages and go wild enjoying all the fun on offer, there is something for everyone at Pensthorpe this Father's Day. With the onset of Summer, June is also a wonderful time to visit Piet Oudolf's Millennium Garden, with its mix of ornamental grasses and perennials that will continue flowering right through summer until autumn, and the serene, waterside Wave Garden is something not to be missed."

Pensthorpe Natural Park is open between 10am and 5pm on Sunday 16 June 2019.

* If a family books afternoon tea for the day, the father of the group will get a 25 per cent off voucher to spend in the gift shop on the same day. One voucher per booking. Min of two people. Booking must be made between 2:30pm-4pm. Subject to availability.
