Families playing in the badger and pepper play area

Badger and Pepper play area

Badger and Pepper were the beloved dogs of Arthur Hussey and we have now introduced their playground into the garden, to keep our younger visitors entertained. Swing from the trees on our new tree swings, play our natural drum kit or hide out in the play house. For those not afraid to get their hands dirty there is also the opportunity to make a mud pie, or two, in our mud kitchen.
