As an annual pass holder with two young children, I visit fairly often but not as much as I used to, as I feel it’s going downhill and the prices are being hiked up without really seeing improvements. The entire toddler area in the PlayBarn...More

Hi Lynda, so sorry I have only just seen this. Yes we are, we're about six miles south of Stamford. I think the easiest way to get to us from Spalding is to take the A15 to Peterborough and then the A47 towards Leicester.
