Play areas

We have two children's play areas. Just before the Visitor Reception, find our play area for 7 and under, which is kitted out with a little slide, playhouses and woodchip underfoot for a soft landing. Children of all ages will enjoy our natural play area overlooking the Charcoal Burner's Camp in the lush landscape garden.
