The Playbarn


Our giant Indoor Playbarn has so much to offer children of all ages, it can be hard to persuade them to leave!

This is so much more than just a games room.

There is a Soft Play area, buckets of toys, various baby-walkers and ride on cars & trikes, a play-mat, a soft-floor playground with climbing frame, slide and swings, a two-storey wendy house with a little kitchen inside, a giant enclosed trampoline, and table tennis, a pool table and table football for the older ones.

Being in the Playbarn does not have to be a tiring experience for the parents. There are comfortable sofas around in the space and a selection of current magazines to enjoy whilst the children play. The Playbarn is gently heated from beneath, so despite its size it maintains a pleasant temperature even in winter.

And of course the swings and climbing frame in the background will keep the children entertained for hours.

"Parents of young children know that tiring the kids out before bed is essential to help them sleep better. When children sleep better they are happier during the day, enhancing the holiday for the whole family. Wherever your day takes you, leave a little time for a spell in the Playbarn before bed!"

The Playbarn works well in two ways.

Firstly as a space to come to any time for a while with the family purely as a leisure pursuit. The second way to use the Playbarn is as an extension of your living space - it's comfortable homely atmosphere means you can happily spend a morning or afternoon there without having to get the family organised and into the car for an outing. Taking the agenda out of spending time with your family is one of the main ways that families relax here, giving you the space to simply enjoy being together. It makes a perfect contrast from the constant appointments, journeys and organising of modern family life...

During certain times of the year, the children can do ceramic painting in the Playbarn with Bridget.

The Playbarn is always open and ready to enjoy all year round, and for the exclusive use of our families here at Flear.

Table football and a Pool table are also available in the playbarn at Flear Farm, just next to the magnificent Wendy house and Trampoline.jpg
