THE KIDS’ ZONE

Our secure buildings within the hotel grounds include separate spaces for different age groups. These areas are suited to a variety of activities including games, arts and crafts, and campfire cooking. Our sessions change through the seasons, get involved in Easter Egg hunts, summer games in the grounds, team sports on the lawn and crazy science shows throughout the year.
