There is an extra sitting room with TV and double sofa bed, which doubles up as seventh bedroom. Toy boxes for different ages can be pre-ordered to your cottage. Don't worry if you run out of space in the car - our 'baby and toddler rescue cupboard' contains just about everything you could think of - baby monitor sets, nightlights, bed protectors, baby bath, potty, playpen, backpack carrier, pushchair, bouncy chair, fireguards and lots more. All can be borrowed free of charge (subject to availability) We also have a great adventure playground with swings, tower, rope frame, slide, tunnel and suspension bridge (for ages 2 to 9), and an indoor games room, with full size table tennis, pool and table football - and a unique kids construction site. Equipment for outdoor games, including boules, cricket, football, badminton and croquet, is available for use.

A variety of outdoor attractions can be found nearby, including Trotters World of Animals near Bassenthwaite, Walby Farm Park near Carlisle, Rookin House Activity Centre and Ullswater Steamers. Indoor venues well worth a visit (also for adults) are the Puzzling Place in Keswick, Aztec soft play centre in Carlisle, Rheged at Penrith, the Rum Story in Whitehaven and Tullie House Museum in Carlisle.
