Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is there a lot of walking, if so is there plenty of seating? What does the restaurant have to offer and is it reasonably priced?

not a lot of walking as long as you can park near the entrance. excellent value for money. seating is best at cafe.
How much is the playbarn during the weekdays
15 January 2016|
Response from 36tripper |
The indoor playbarn was £4.50 during half term week for children over 3, other than that think it is £4.00 any other time. Think under 3 years of age are free.
Is it dog friendly here?
15 August 2015|
Response from Moyra M | Property representative |
Dogs are allowed on site, but must be kept on a lead. They are not allowed in any of the units or at the rear of the Playbarn.
