Children and young people of all ages are very welcome. Having three children of our own, we know how much stuff has to be hauled about with you.

We also have a large area suitable for ball games etc for older children and young people, with various seating areas around the garden. If there are additional items of equipment that you require, please let us know and we will do our best to provide them.
