  • Took my 3 year old here and he loved it. The out door area is amazing, with lots to see and play on. The soft play area was very busy but he loved it too.  more »

  • I've visited a few times with the kids. They absolutely love it. The glen is great fun for them, although it may be looking a bit tired in places. Large area for them to run around and play. Lots of characters and from famous stories etc. The den is great also, lots for all ages. The cafe has a good choice, and reasonably priced. The entry cost for both is very good value for money in my opinion, as some places would charge this amount for one of these. Overall, I would recommend as a good half day out with the kids!
  • Great place for small children. We used to go here when our kids were small, went back recently for a visit, there are a few new things. Nice grounds.
  • Rude. Only visited the Den in the Glen. Would give the place 4 or 5 stars if it wasn't for the rude lady at admissions. Fantastic soft play area for the kids and nice friendly staff behind the snack bar area. The Den can easily keep the kids (and parents)happy and occupied for an afternoon. Like I stated the only downside was the rudeness of the lady at the admissions desk. It's a shame as she lets down a good business and nice play park and leaves you feeling unwelcome.
  • Plenty of space for my 2 year old to run about. She loves it down at the Glen
  • Been to this place so many times and really love the facilities but especially the staff are so much friendlier and more helpful than at all the other soft play centres we've been to. And it's always super clean. The glen itself is very lovely too and definitely worth a visit.
