Play! Fun and games for young children

The Spotted Giraffe boasts a soft play area on three levels with enough slides, tunnels and stairways to satisfy the most energetic child. 

Brightly coloured and spotlessly clean, the playbarn offers a safe space for toddlers and pre-school children to run, play and make new friends. The equipment is designed to present different physical challenges as the children grow and encourages them to explore and try new activities.

Spotted Giraffe is the perfect place to host a party. We offer a range of options, including private hire of the whole playbarn.

Meet and Eat

Our Cafe is the perfect place to meet and catch up with friends.

Lovely fun barn. Great place for parents to have a cuppa or a coffee and a naughty nibble of cake while the children play. Not noisy/not too busy....chilled place
