Being parents ourselves, we understand that … by the time you’ve got all the kit they need in the car, you’re lucky if there’s room for a toothbrush for you. To ease the load a bit we have the following baby equipment, which should help to free up a bit of boot space you! There is no charge – just let us know when booking what you need.
Each cottage has a selection of children’s matching cups, plates, bowls and cutlery and we can provide sheets and blankets for the cots. We also put in age appropriate toys such as Duplo, Lego or Brio, and there are always books, toys and games for your little ones to play with.
The ground is level around all the cottages which is great for playing ball games and using the scooters and ride on toys that we provide for the older ones. We have a small playground with adventure tower, wave slide, climbing wall and swings. It is situated in a small wooded area which is great for running in and around.
We have a carp pool, with fantastic fun fish feeding in the spring and summer and great for looking out for pond life. We have a large population of frogs and have great fun spotting the frogspawn and tadpoles.
The vintage tractors are amazing and a real slice of history to view, touch and smell.
We have some lovely safe walks around our 600 acre farm and village and just across the road is the village play area, with football pitch, basketball nets, trim trail and barbecue area.
And if you want to go further afield, there are numerous family fun places to visit both indoor when it is wet and cold and outdoor when warmer and sunnier.
