8: Hobbledown Heath – Opening 11th July
Climb, Explore, Discover! With this Play park option, you can scale wooden towers, explore underground tunnels and aerial walkways and climb to your heart’s content.
There is a labyrinth of secret passages, hidden deep beneath the Village, emulating the passages to the Potenesia land in the Hobbledown book upon which the park is based.
In total, there are seven entrances and exits — don’t worry; you won’t get lost down there. But the tunnels are dark inside so they’re not suitable for under 5’s unless accompanied by an adult.
The tunnels are only open on weekends and school holidays but the village itself is open all day, giving you plenty of time to explore this fantasy land.
