The Storybook Play Den, located just beyond the Maze and Water Garden, offers a fantastic location to let young imaginations run wild.

Storybook favourites

Carved wooden models of favourite storybook characters fill the Play Den, including Peter Pan, Captain Hook and his arch enemy the ever-hungry crocodile.

A welcome face

Old Brown from Beatrix Potter's 'The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin' sits at the entrance to the Play Den welcoming families as they arrive. Old Brown has replaced a life-sized model of Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, who sadly 'retired' in 2013 after deteriorating beyond repair.
