Our super new play barn is ready for testing! We have been converting the barn since last October and have almost finished. There is still a little outside work to be done but the activity play equipment is installed and for the past 2 weeks young test pilots have been putting it through its paces. So far so good and all reports have been good from young and old alike.

All the soft play equipment is professionally made to exacting British Standards and very safe and toddler friendly. There are tubes to crawl though, holes to drop down, biff bash mats, a whirly slide and a spinning disc plus some Little Tikes bikes to rush around on. The biggest problem seems to be removing the children in order to eat, sleep or go out!

We have also included some professional Life Fitness gym equipment – a spinning bike, a treadmill and a cross trainer for the fitness fanatics amongst you to entertain yourselves whilst the little ones are playing (for the not so keen, there is also a sofa!)

The outside patio area is taking a little longer as great artistic creations have been going on. The floor will be slate flagstones and dotted amongst them are mosaics created from pictures that visiting children have drawn for us over the years in the visitors’ books. It has been great fun to do and we are all hoping that people will derive as much pleasure from looking at them as we have producing them!

Apart from one cancellation in Olearia on 7th July our farm holiday cottages in Cornwall are now fully booked until 21st September so it’s onwards and upwards looking forward to some good summer weather to keep our visitors happy.

All the best.
