Planning some family time with the kids this summer and not quite sure what to do? The Argory has got summer sorted.

The National Trust property in Moy has everything you need to keep the little ones (and the big ones) entertained, whatever the weather.

Grab an adventure scrapbook from Reception and have a go at completing your 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4. Climb a tree, make a trail with sticks, hold a scary beast and more!

The Argory has a fantastic play area complete with jungle climbing frame, balancing logs, a rope swing and short and long walks to run around on too.

The kids can step back in time in The Argory Courtyard - dress up and have a go at cleaning out the stables. There’s mini wheelbarrows, spades and rakes for all budding stable hands and they need helpers in the old laundry too – come and see what the Victorian Wash Day was like for a laundry maid.

Kids eat free (T&C’s apply) from Monday – Friday so the summer holidays don’t need to break the bank either. There’s free Wi-Fi too so Mum and Dad can catch up on the latest news over a speciality coffee, wrap or sandwich while the kids make their own fun.

Young detectives can join the Pest Quest in the house and see what’s eating The Argory’s collection. Help the conservation team track down all the pesky pests hiding out among the furniture and fabrics and receive a sticker when your quest is complete.

Claire Anthony, Visitor Services Manager commented “We have so much to offer families and individuals alike this summer at The Argory. Go wild in the outdoors, have fun in the Courtyard or revere in the history of this remarkable Victorian home on a tour of the house. You can create your own adventure!”

In addition to the daily offer at The Argory, local musicians will entertain visitors every Sunday throughout July and August in the Courtyard and the sizzling summer bbq will be in full swing.

The Argory is open 7 days a week in July & August from 12-5pm. Visit: nationaltrust.org.uk/argory or on facebook NationalTrustMidUlster.
