Finding things to do to keep the kids entertained for the six week holidays can often be challenging! We’ve pieced together some fun activities around the Pheasant Inn (both indoor and outdoor – just in case the British weather isn’t on your side).
If you’re making a day of it, we’re located close to all of the below activities – we have a delicious kids menu available, making us the perfect place for a pit-stop. We have overnight accommodation too if you’re looking for a break this summer – the whole family are welcome, even the dogs!
The Ice Cream Farm
For those with a sweet tooth, just down the road is award-winning Cheshire Farm Ice-Cream. There are over 50 different flavours of ice-cream and sorbet for you to sample, including Salted Caramel, Choc Fudge Cookie and unique tastes such as Cotton Candy and Cherry Cola. It’s not all about the ice cream though, they’re also home to Europe’s largest indoor sand and water play area, as well as mini golf, an animal farm, outdoor climbing frames and quad bikes! Fun for adults, teens and kids alike.
Try your hand at candle making using a variety of colours of wax, carefully moulding and creating your own personalised masterpiece. Also on hand is an assortment of arts and crafts activities; get your creativity flowing with pottery painting and sand art, or take home your own handmade key-ring or fridge magnet.
Get the whole family outdoors as you enjoy the famous Crocky Trail, a mile long adrenaline-pumping course, scrambling through trees, climbing over crooked bridges and swinging over the fast flowing Crocky stream. There are also vertical slides, a rotating barrel and gladiator gauntlet to tackle – phew.
Steeped in medieval history, this popular tourist attraction is famed for its far-reaching views from the top. They also regularly put on events which are great for the kids, including outdoor adventures for budding ‘Nature Detectives’ and their annual ‘Knights Tournament’ at the end of July.
