Also at the Barn, kids can dress up as farmyard animals and play farm board-games. Outside you'll find lots of tractors and diggers to play with! Not the full-sized, diesel-chugging type; but junior pedal tractors, trailers and frontloads are all available at our barn. There’s room to pedal around both indoors and outdoors so they can be enjoyed whatever the weather.

Pick up your map for our newly opened Secret Shore Nature Trail meandering along the Lough Shore nearby.
