All weather play, year-round for children under eight years old
There are two play barns – one with soft and the other with messy play. Outside, we have wide open spaces to explore that include our outdoor play area and farmyard.
Soft Play Barn
Our heated Play Barn with its soft play area, birthday party corner and great café is ideal for young families to relax and have fun. As well as plenty of space for little ones to play safely, there’s freshly prepared hot and cold food available and a toilet and baby change
Messy Play Barn
This is for outdoor play indoors. It has huge sandpits with fossil dig, ride-on toys and loads of space for little ones to have a run about all against the background of our amazing dinosaur mural. Picnic facilities are available for visitors in the Messy Play Barn.
PLEASE NOTE, the Messy Play Barn will be closed from Mon 4th November, reopening for Farmer Christmas Land on selected dates from Sat 23rd November.
In the farmyard there is a fleet of ride-on ride-ons for pre-school children and pedal carts for the under tens. The adventure playground, next to the Soft Play Barn, includes a giant climbing frame, a bouncy pillow and huge sandpits with sand-diggers and special area for the under 5s.
At the entrance to Dragon Field is our ‘Sleeping Dragon’, an earth mound for children to climb with great views of the farm. Beyond this are willow dens and areas of long grass in the Summer which are great for exploring. There is also an area for picnics and a Picnic Shed for visitors’ use in bad weather with a toilet block that is open during the Summer.
