Family activites

Adventure play

As well as exploring the lake with their grown-ups, and running wild in our ancient woodland, children will love our adventure play areas. Older kids can whizz through the trees on our zip wire or down our giant slide. There is also a younger children’s play area with a smaller pool, bouncy pillow and play equipment for younger children to conquer. Children must be supervised at all times.
