Below are a number of Soft Play areas within a 20 minutes drive of our village.
For very young children (e.g. up to 3) I find that Jolly Roger offers a very large area for them to play. Once the kids are older, they prefer a change so view their websites and decide for yourself.
Studley Grange, Hay Lane 01793 855566
Soft Play area just West of Swindon. Site includes ball pools, tower slides, play cannons, ice cream parlor and cafe.
London Road,Hopton Park,Devizes, SN10 2EY
Play structure, ball ponds, Slides & rope bridge. Available for private hire. 92 seated restaurant. Height restriction 1.4m. Children’s parties
Many of the mums in the village prefer this with the 3-5 year old. Comfy seating, a good cup of coffee and a slightly nicer parent environment than the larger complexes.
Greenbridge Road 01793 522044
The south’s biggest indoor play area - Jolly Roger has bouncy castles, seven different ball pools and the Drop (a 31ft long slide). There are also biff and bash bags, webbed tunnels and a special little tikes area, as well as a place where adults can relax and enjoy a drink, snack or even a meal. Jolly Roger has a kids driving area where visitors can hop on a bus, drive a post office van or even a police car.
Clearwater Business Park, Frankland Road, Blagrove 01793 524646
Children up to 12 years old will have fun, fun, fun at Kidz Aloud. Adventure play equipment in 12,000 sq feet, rising an amazing 6.5 metres high, including an astraslide, a dropslide and twisting spiral slide. There is a separate toddler area for the ‘wee’ ones so that they can play safely too. Also the Kidz Aloud cafe, which is open all day.
There are several swimming pools in the area.
The Marlbough Leisure centre is a standard 25m pool.
The Oasis in Swindon is a brilliant fun pool with slides and wave pool (but not very good if you want to swim)
