Play areas

Claremont used to be the playground of princesses and now it can be yours too. Our play area is great for young children whi are learning to explore and become more adventurous. It's located right by our Grab and Go Hut, so you can relax with a cup of coffee while the children play.

We have also have Badger's Basecamp, a den building site on Stoney Hill, perfect for older children.

Tea-room treats

If you're feeling peckish make sure to stop off in the café, where you can indulge in a delicious range of drinks, cakes, breakfasts and light lunches. Don't forget to ask about our children's snack packs.

There's plenty to do in the tea-room while you tuck in. We provide a selection of colouring sheets, crayons and children's books to help you keep the little ones entertained.

We also sell delicious hot drinks and snacks from Grab and Go Hut, which is right by the play area, so you can relax with a tea or coffee while the kids play.


Baby-changing facilities are available in the toilet block outside the pay barrier and you're welcome to breastfeed. A buggy- and wheelchair-friendly path takes you around the circumference of the lake, and there are covered seats and benches throughout the garden.
