There are three outdoor play areas for children at Coombe Mill. One has ride on toddler trikes and tractors and is designed for under 5’s only with a safe fence all around and gate to enter. The other two play areas are in safe areas of the farm but not fenced in and suitable for children of all ages. One is close to the lodge holiday accommodation and the other near the Coombe Train and holiday cottages. As well as these purpose built play areas there is a selection of wild adventure play activities to discover inspired by nature.
This kids holiday play area is tucked away at the far end of the Coombe estate backing onto woodland. Here there is a climbing fort with swing, baby swing, straight and spiral slide. Separate from the fort there is a further long slide, a bouncing board, zip wire, swing ball and a giant covered sand pit with mini diggers inside. Children can spend hours playing in this area and it forms a great meeting place for budding holiday friendships.
Across on the cottage lawn is the 2nd play area with an exciting pirate boat. This has steps, a slide, steering wheels and inside cabin areas for fun imaginative play. There is even a real cannon poking out. Next to this is a 12ft Trampoline and a look out castle. This cottage play area is a popular with all children around the time of the evening train which runs right past. Waiting for a train is never dull with friends and a playground to keep you busy. Don’t worry the driver gives a good toot as he draws up to the platform giving everyone enough time to run over from the play area.
This little ride on play area is packed with mini tractors, bikes, cars and scooters and a play house for under 5’s to enjoy. It is centrally located to all the holiday cottages and lodges and opposite the under 5’s indoor soft play barn too. This play area is totally enclosed with fencing and a gate for peace of mind for parents. Ride on toys can also be taken out for supervised play around the farm.
The is a Badminton Net set up on the front lawn. Rackets and shuttle cocks are available to borrow from the boot room, you will also find a cricket set and Garden Croquet set in the borrow room to encourage outdoor family fun.
Currently under construction is a crazy golf course due to be completed to 9 holes during 2018.
