Come and enjoy our play areas to suit all ages…

With all the excitement of meeting the animals and having to be quiet and careful around them we know children need to let off some steam so we've created different play areas designed to allow both indoor and outdoor play.

Outdoor play

Let your little ones monkey around on our specially designed outdoor adventure playground…

We have something suitable for all age groups. Let them climb, jump, slide and swing whilst you relax at one of our many picnic benches overlooking the facilities.

Indoor play

Come and visit our indoor Playbarn where your little ones can release all their energy in the ball pool and on the slides.

For a small fee your children can play for an hour! The Playbarn is open 10am-4pm daily.

 *The Playbarn may be closed due to private bookings.

All children must wear socks or tights

The Playbarn is for the use of under 8’s only*



On a sunny day what’s better than going to the beach?

Play and make friends on the pirate ship,  and have fun in the sand. Don’t forget your bucket and spades!
