Ever wonder what Geocaching is? Long before Pokemon Go arrived, our 1,200-acre estate was full of hidden treasures to find. Learn the basics of geocaching on our special introduction for families.

We've teamed up with our retail partner Cotswold Outdoor Chester to give you skills to start your own geocache family adventure. We'll provide you with a GPS unit, show you how to use it and send you off to see how many geocaches you can find in our woodlands. Once you've learned the basics, join the biggest worldwide treasure hunt! Try downloading the app on your smartphone and creating a free account prior to the event and we can show you how it works.

Booking essential - Call 0344 249 1895.

Meeting point: Look out for the Cotswold Outdoor Chester tent in the Timber Yard. Outdoor clothing is recommended with study footwear. Please note that we will need identification in order for you to borrow a GPS unit per family.
