We’re About The Little People…



Take a step away from traditional soft play to come and visit our forest-themed interactive play area. Designed to stimulate children’s imagination and creative skills, with storytelling, lights and interactive items to intrigue and delight.

Rocket ship


Children learn through experiencing and interacting with the world around them. In our magical forest there are many exciting triggers and interactions to encourage experimentation and investigation.

Playing child


The play area includes seating areas for accompanying adults. Food and drinks are available from the adjacent Magic Beans Cafe.

Rocking horse


Coming soon! We plan to host regular spots such as reduced volume sessions for children who benefit from a calmer environment plus plans are afoot for a creche and other activities.
