Childrens Activities & Play Area.
We have a wonderful 3 acre garden for the little ones to ‘discover’ and to make it more fun we have a ‘Dressing up’ options at the beginning of the garden walk, and is suitable for all ages. Choose from Fairy wings, headdresses, butterfly masks, Gnome hats, Gnome Jackets and more to create your own character. ( share them on Facebook with our blessings).
There is a Fairy trail to follow through the garden searching for fairies and fairy doors. Within the gardens you can ‘meet’ The Green Man, the Rusted Knight Of Olde, see Excalibur in its Stone, then wander through the ‘Fairy Glen to find ‘Hobbiton’.
Enter the Cave with its swirling mist to find the witches cauldron, then run around the turf labyrinth and make a wish. Stroll through the mown tracks and pathways of the beautiful wild flower meadow then head over to the wildlife area which is open on special days throughout the year for pond dipping and educational days. ( please phone 01299 250720 for details )
We have art and craft days in the garden room in summer holidays where the children can get creative, priced from £3 pp. ( please phone 01299 250720 for details )
Inside the Tearoom there is a dedicated children’s Play area with a selection of toys and a blackboard for them to scribble away on, even drawing pictures of what they have seen in the garden.
The Tea Garden and adventure playground with the pet’s corner and living willow tunnel, slide, Castle and play house can be found near the Garden Entrance where the children can use up that last bit of energy before the drive home. Entry is included in the garden trail admission cost, or if you do not go around the garden you can still gain entry by purchasing a drink or food from our own Tearoom. Please note that only food purchased on the premises can be consumed in the Tea Garden.
NB. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times & no dogs allowed in the play area.
