Update Saturday 27th June 2020
Planned activity for 2020 – Chocolate Forest refunds.
Updated Friday 29th May 2020
Due to the national lockdown our planned Easter period of activity did not go ahead. With the time frames unknown for this unprecedented action, Kelburn adopted a plan to reschedule the themed activity of the ‘Chocolate Forest’ rather than cancel. Many customers had purchased tickets for this event and the management team at Kelburn have been overwhelmed by your support at this time. With the uncertainty of forward planning the team at Kelburn have decided that all customers with tickets purchased for the period 4th – 19th April will receive a full refund with immediate effect.
The Country Centre events team are extremely keen to ensure families visit Kelburn this summer and autumn and have their thinking caps on to ensure fun activities which support social distancing while engaging with our natural environment.
Your refund will be returned to the bank card used to purchase your ticket(s). The secure payment is operated by TYG Tickets and once refunds are activated they can take up to 5 working days to show on your account. If you have any concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote your order number in the subject of the email.

ABOUT KELBURN ESTATE
Based around a 13th Century castle that’s had an amazing makeover courtesy of a team of Brazilian artists, the estate near Largs, Ayrshire also features dramatic walks, breathtaking gardens and many features of historical interest. Kelburn Castle is currently having restoration work carried out. Elements of this project will be concluded later this year and will help preserve the Castle for many years to come. The work includes re-roofing the building and doing internal structural works. The owners have funded this project and received support from Historic Environment Scotland due to the Castle’s historic importance. Some 2000 acres is rough moorland, and 1500 acres of the better land is contained within a 7ft wall that encircles the heart of the estate.
