The Playbarn is a great place to let off some steam. Our soft play area has various sections that are purpose built to suit different ages and stages of development. Our chicken coop is a firm favourite with our visitors as you can collect the eggs in the coop and watch them fall, and pedal around in our designated  tractor area. Or what about a race against your friends down the mud slide to find out who is faster?

If you simply want to watch the fun, there are plenty of picnic benches around to make yourself comfy as well as free Wifi. The Origin8 kiosk is open on weekends and during school holidays, so you can enjoy hot drinks, homemade cakes and delicious Panini’s.

There’s also our reading corner ‘The Storytime Bookshop’ so feel free to bring in any books to donate or swap. We are always looking for any unwanted children’s or adult books for our 2nd hand book shop.

The Playbarn is the best place to run around in a safe indoor environment for children up to the age of 12. Children must wear socks and be accompanied by an adult at all times.

The Playbarn is open whatever the weather, but if the sun’s shining you might prefer our outdoor play park, with its swings, slides and climbing equipment, or the evergreen maze.
