This is a nice enough place, our 3 and 5 year old love it. They have soft play and a sand pit. There's a cheap and nice cafe with a few newspapers so you can sit and relax. The staff are nice.

Nice little soft play, good cafe, friendly helpful staff throughout. Large sandpit, ride ons as well as the climbing frame and slides. Better for younger children under 7 would say, but well thought out for all ages.
