  • The adventure playground is in the middle of a major refurbishment, and it seems they have employed a company who have thought about things from a child's perspective, as it is really good! Small things like the flying fox being in a gentle hill, but low enough that kids can get on by themselves, or steps which even young children can use easily and safely - the little things make a big difference to the overall experience. Plenty of open space to burn off energy on a hot day!
  • Great place for the little ones to let off some steam! Plenty of walks and an arboretum and river to keep you cool on a hot day. The transplanted farm cottage is great for showing the changes in the last 60 years :) Also the museum can give a great insight into social change as well as country life.
