Big Fun for Energetic Kids
Much more than your average softplay! We are a huge venue with BIG slides, hundreds of metres of clamber challenges, walkways, rope bridges and air cannons. Outside, we offer a massive undercover jumping pillow, an inflatable assault course and, if the weather permits, zorbing. For little ones, there are toddler and baby zones. All included in entry.
Please note: we are a stand-alone attraction on the same site as The Children’s Farm. You can visit either attraction, separately, or combine a visit by buying a ticket to both.
Currently, we are closed.
General booking will not open until May but we are taking Birthday Treat bookings in advance. See our party page for more information.
Advance booking only during the pandemic: the farm and the play barn have their own booking calendar so generally you need to make a separate purchase for each. If you wish to visit both venues then there is a limited supply of discounted combi-tickets from the Children’s Farm website. For more information see the Info page from our menu.
Please read our COVID INFO page before booking. We have strict rules on gathering and mask wearing.
Great food, cooked to order. We offer a good value family-friendly menu with generous portion sizes; from burgers to home-cooked lasagne, there’s something for everyone’s taste.
Currently we are offering a more limited menu, see image. Allergy information is available for all items.
Please note: we do not allow you to consume your own food or drink inside or outside the play barn. Should you wish to picnic, there are benches near the entrance to the farm which play barn customers may use.
Lots of fun for kids of all ages …
Big Slides; who’s brave enough to try the drop slide? Don’t worry if you’re not, we have three more of varying speeds and steepness.
Bright, open atmosphere; The Big Play Barn is a spacious, purpose- built attraction with lots of natural light and sliding doors to our secure outside space.
Bounce; we have a massive bouncy pillow located right next to the main seating area. It’s outside but under cover so it’s perfect for fresh air bouncing without getting wet.
Loads for little ones; at least 4 spaces are dedicated to younger children, some for babies and some for toddlers. Little explorers can also enjoy the big children’s play areas and you are welcome to accompany them.
Zorbing fun; if you enjoy rolling around in a plastic bubble, you are in luck. Zorbing is included in your admission. It is season and weather permitting (zorbing isn’t much fun in the wind and rain!) For age 4, upwards.

“Was the first time visiting the Big Play Barn and it was very impressive, so much to do indoors and outdoors. My son loved it and so did his dad, to be honest. It’s definitely the best and largest play area I’ve seen and I also found it very clean.”
