Picture-perfect moments with your toddler on their fun family holiday
Our lodges are designed with families in mind and include everything you need for a relaxing break with a toddler. Whether you’re staying in a Woodland Lodge, a Treehouse or anything in between, you’ll find:
A cot (you’ll need to bring your own linen)
A super-sized storage cupboard for your pushchair
A spacious layout, perfect for little explorers
Stair-gates (in two-storey lodges)
Forest views so little ones can spot wildlife
Please be aware that some lodges have steps to the entrance, so check this when booking.
You’ll find plenty of fun activities for little adventurers. Toddlers can get creative in Fun Pots with Tots, test their balance on Mini Trek or Roller Tots - or just get messy in Mucky Pups!
Baby Balance Bike Buddy
Agility, balance and coordination… it’s all here in this fun session, designed to help your little ones find their feet on our baby balance trikes. Help them enjoy their new-found independence as they take on our special course. Minimum age 10 months.
Available at all locations.
Our Baby Owls session is a great chance for you, along with little ones to enjoy meeting Pop, our very own sleepy barn owl, and some of his feathered friends in the forest. Minimum age 1 year.
Available at all locations.
All of our restaurants are child-friendly. You’ll find plenty of space for multiple highchairs and pushchairs, children’s menus offering healthy and tasty dishes, and activity packs to keep little ones entertained. We also offer free Ella’s Kitchen baby food (subject to availability) as well as indoor or outdoor play areas at some of our restaurants. Be sure to pre-book your table as early evening times are popular.
If you’d prefer a relaxing evening in, order restaurant food to be delivered to your lodge.
Splash into the Subtropical Swimming Paradise on a toddler-friendly break, heated to 29.5c all year round and home to children’s water play areas, splash pools and mini slides. Why not sing and splash along in our free Baby Dolphins play session? You’ll also find family changing rooms, large lockers, a buggy park and the Canopy Café and Bar serving poolside food and drink.
Top tip: hire a Family Cabana for a cosy, peaceful retreat – perfect for naptime!
The forest is a gigantic adventure playground and the ideal place to explore on a short break with toddlers. Splash through puddles, spot ducklings by the lake, look for creepy-crawlies under logs and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the forest around you. You can hire buggy trailers from the Cycle Centre – be sure to check your village map for the cycle routes.
Please be aware that due to the nature of the forest, not all woodland paths are suitable for pushchairs.
