We visit Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire every other month to visit my in-laws. And this month we stayed for four days as it was the half-term. When my Father-in-Law suggested visiting Hatton Adventure World, we jumped at the chance. We have only been once, when Moozles was two years old (she is now six). We knew she would get more out of it now, plus her two-year old brother Dubz loves animals.
We had a great time. My children loved feeding the animals, and especially stroking the goats. Moozles also got to touch a snake. They rode, bounced, climbed, slid and zipped along. And there were Halloween-themed scarecrows everywhere, which Dubz loved. I could barely drag him away from them.
We did drag him away as he was getting hungry. We had lunch in the restaurant, which was in the midst of the soft play. This was quite handy as the kids played while we ate. And they got to play again while we all drank our teas and coffee afterwards. I liked that the soft play had three sections: 0-2, 2-4 and 4 and older (the latter with big slides that Moozles loved).
After lunch we went to the pumpkin patch. As it was Pumpkin Week, each child was allowed to pick out a pumpkin (cost included in the ticket). Moozles was sad to not get a tractor or pony ride, but Dubz was exhausted and we had to get him home for a nap. But we had a fun four hours.
Hatton is only a 15-minute drive from Leamington Spa. Tickets cost £13.95 per person (free for under 2s) during Pumpkin Week. There is a 10% discount if you buy your ticket online at least 24 hours before your visit. I think the entry fee is quite high, but there aren’t many farms in the area that have such a good playground and soft play facilities.
This week I am linking up to Country Kids. Pop on over to see more outdoor family fun.
