Great to keep the kids occupied while you relax over a coffee! Really good for ages up to about 12. Soft play - Plenty for the kids to do to tire themselves out and get some exercise.

Great location set in a beautiful forest. Indoor play centre is cool and well catered. Kids loved it with plenty to keep them entertained (6 and 10). Party was well organised and staff were great. The surroundings are fantastic!
