Enter The Ice Cream Farm through a flavour forest, filled with upside down trees in a myriad of colours leading to the most enchanting surprise … a magical ice cream tree! The only one of its kind in the world, the amazing ice cream tree is overflowing with giant scoops of melting ice cream and oozes a freezing mist and snow to unveil Daisy’s Garden, a magical world of fun that provides a free play experience with a difference.

The sensational Honeycomb Canyon, Europe’s largest indoor sand and water play, allows children to engage and explore all year round, whatever the British weather brings. Filled with sand pits, playhouses, water mills and pools, Honeycomb Canyon is a hive of activity buzzing with excitement, but things can get a little messy so it’s always wise to bring a towel and spare change of clothes!

There’s no experience necessary at the quad bike racing track, just vrooming good fun!

Brand new to The Ice Cream Farm for summer 2017, you can now pan for hidden treasures at Gemstone Cove, sifting through sand and water to uncover special gems you can take home, and climb 7m through a daring web to the top of Jelly Drop, before sliding right down to the bottom, it’s scarily good fun!
