MUMMY’S GIN FUND SAYS:

Having spent quite a few birthday parties at this soft play centre, I am happy to report that this does exactly what it says on the tin – a crazy soft play housed in a smallish barn for toddlers and older children up to age seven.  This place is very popular and seems to host one birthday party straight after another, which can sometimes make you feel like you are just another ‘cog’ in the wheel.  The food is not fantastic but the kids seem to like it and there is just about drinkable tea/coffee available for the adults as well as a small selection of chips, chocolate and soft drinks.  There are tables and chairs for the adults to perch on whilst watching over the kids, but it does get busy and these can sometimes be at a premium!  The barn is open seven days a week from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. but does have a policy of children’s parties only at the weekend, so you can’t just turn up. There is also a difference in price depending on whether your visit falls in peak hours or not (3.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. is classed as peak).  Recently, the site have added a lovely village-type farm shop selling everything from homemade cakes to hand-reared beef to organic ice cream and vegetables.  A visit to the shop whilst the kids play is a must for five minutes peace and quiet! There is also a lovely restaurant next door and although I haven’t sampled their wares, it looked lovely on our last visit and was very busy!  Overall, a good soft play centre with outside space play area and few extras for the adults thrown in.
