They can also hitch a ride on the back of a tractor and swing on a rope like Spiderman before launching into giant hay bales for a super soft landing.

Indoors the newly improved play barn offers children a great secure space to run free. Toddlers will also love their own designated soft play area where they can tumble, fall and crawl through all the activities without fear of getting hurt. Back outside green space and picnic spots surround the large playground.
