Time to play!

Head to the play area. It’s even bigger and better with a mini abbey to scramble over, tall towers to climb and a zip wire to whizz along.

Made from sustainable timber and hand-spliced ropes, the ‘playscape’ has been designed to blend in with the woods around so you can hop, skip and jump from one end to the other underneath the shady trees.

For little legs

Little ones can discover using touch, sight and sound with chimes, a speak tube, skittles and a ball roll too. There’s things to wobble along, jump over and climb on...you'll find a wooden abbey, a woodland house, scramble nets and posts, swings, fireman's poles, a slide, a roundabout, a gigantic rope bridge and a huge zip wire for the most daring adventurers of all.
