Play Area

The children’s adventure play area was opened in 2014 and has been a firm favourite with our younger visitors ever since. Equipment includes an Explorer Tower, Sky Walk Trail, Bird’s Nest Swing, Play Hut  and ‘Pick-Up Sticks’  and younger visitors will enjoy our Play Hut, Bucket Swing and Horse Sit-In Springer.

There are picnic benches alongside so you can enjoy lunch and there are toilets and baby changing right next door.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
