    We visited the yard with friends to have fun on a rainy day. It was a bit tricky to find and car park is not really good. Only 4 spaces then it has to be street parking. The soft play area is very spa...  more »

  • Great stop off on way down a1. Good sandwiches, great cake and coffee, friendly staff and good soft play areas. Relaxed atmosphere. Not very much parking but free parking on nearby streets.
  • Great soft play area for children and adults too. Very good quality coffee from proper barrister machine with skilled coffee makers. Adults can see pretty much all the play areas from cafe area so makes for a chilled visit with adults able to catch up with friends while children play. Has separate toddler area to keep little ones safe, party room, good quality healthy food options and clean facilities.
  • Fantastic CLEAN soft play area. Around £4.50 entrance. Good security. Great selection of quality cakes and snacks for adults. Parking is a let down
  • Kids soft play place has more to offer an older toddler than the real young ones. Decent refreshments - it can get a bit packed when the weather's rubbish and finding somewhere to stash the buggy can be a bit of a bun fight.
  • A great place for the kids to play. Lovely cuppa and cake!
