Owner description: We are a small family owned and managed indoor soft play centre for children in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales town of Settle. Children can have great full scrambling, climbing, swinging and sliding while the adults can relax in the comfortable seating area and cafe. We pride ourselves on healthy homemade food and cakes and make a great coffee. We run many activities each week and most of these are included in the normal entry price-please check the website for more details. Thank You Rob, Sally-Anne and our two little girls.

This does not look much from outside but is better form the inside, bit haphazard inside but great for children not too big to make it frightening for a 3 year old
A couple of trip hazards though and some electrical cables that were not secured
Food ok but a very long wait - we would go again but do hope it can up its game a bit I would have put a good on this not average and not yet very good

Thank Lucyjazzylegs

Thank You for taking time to review us. As a small family run place we work really hard to constantly improve the facilities to help try and serve this small community. We recently had a mini refurbishment inside and outside and have received lots of positive comments since we reopened. Our aim has always been to provide great value homemade food and we always prepare all our food to order to ensure it is fresh when you receive it, but am really sorry for your wait on this visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Thank You Rob, Sally-Anne and our two little girls.

This is the soft play area that we measure all other play areas by and so far none have measured up. It is very friendly, clean and our daughter loved playing on the frame (as did we). When we are next in the Settle area we will visit again and would recommend it to anyone. The food was good and our little girl still talks about the dinosaur sandwiches. Keep up the good work.

I have been to the Play Barn a few times with my two children age 7 and 2. It has a great variety of toys. The grown up coffees are delicious but it is undoubtably the value for money and unlimited time to play that makes this a winner and a must go to if ever you need to entertain your little darlings for a few hours! Next time we come to settle we will no doubt return for a play and a mochachino :-)

Hi Lornahgrg,
Blimey, what a lovely lovely reviews and we are really touched that you have taken time to let us know what you think of our place. I have to admit I had to have a big sit down (and a small(ish) whiskey) to get over the shock of you calling us "The best indoor soft play area in the northern England" which is certainly praise indeed. Thank You once again and we hope to see you again soon. Rob, Sally-Anne and our two little girls.

I have been taking my children to the playbarn for over a year now and each time we meet new friends or just have lots of fun. The playbarn has a 'family' atmosphere and the staff make you feel like nothing is too much trouble even on very busy weekends. The food is very reasonable price, tasty, with sensible portions for children. We have been to many of the activities that are running at the Playbarn which are all included in the price (excellent value for money). The playbarn is keep clean and tidy (I completely disagree with the 'dirty' comment) and is a great size for having a coffee whilst watching the children play! Keep up your great work, it has been my little place sanctuary for the past year!!

My nephew and I really enjoy going to the play barn. We find the staff really friendly and helpful. My nephew loves all the play areas and loves the slide. I usually meet up with friends and it's great as you can keep an eye on the kids while you have a cup of tea. We always stay for lunch which is very tasty and very reasonably priced. My nephew loves the sandwiches as they come in dinosaur shaped bread with some fruit. We personally think the play barn Is delivering a excellent package of fun playtime, friendliness, and we look forward to going back.
