  • Excellent to keep small ones entertained or worn out on the soft play. There is a small farm area and outdoor maze in the summer. The soft play itself is good but does need a better adult access (both ways up are not easy if you are over 4!) and some of the toys have seen better days however if you have a toddler they won't care...and if you enjoy coffee/tea and cake then you won't either! Also to mentioned they do GF cake and food! Totally fab!!!
  • My 5 year old is autistic and really struggles to gain access to the upper areas and slide in the soft play. I’ve noticed lots children also have this problem, and most need help from an adult and it’s really difficult to crawl around and up and ok if you’re a contortionist! I don’t understand why they’ve done it like this, there are two ‘emergency access’ points which they could easily open up which would make it much easier, better and more fun. There’s lots to do here, but it’s expensive and I don’t like the fact that adults are charged. I bought a 3 month pass for that reason, but I won’t be coming back when it expires. Shame as it’s local to me, but with the very small soft play area which frustrates my daughter, it just isn’t worth £9 per visit! Would also be useful if they provided paper towels to wipe down toys and slides after the rain, or first thing in the morning.
  • Excellent with lots to keep the children entertained, the toys have seen better days but the small ones don't seem to mind. Would be great to have a more updated menu so we could stay for lunch and spend the whole day occasionally
  • We took a walking 14mth old here for a couple of hours. He mostly enjoyed it. There's a good variety of play areas to keep him amused. The price was a bit steep for the time we spent there, but you have the option to stay as long as you like. There are picnic tables dotted around and a microwave. Quite easy to make a day of it. Charging for adults is a bit mean. May buy the 3 month pass so one of us can take him during the week.
  • Took my two Grandchildren here during half term, they are 6 and 3. Even though it is a bit dated they had a great time.
