Hobbledown

912_title.jpg

912_image1.jpgThe tale centres on the Hobblers, fun fictional characters which live in spectacular play structures all ages will want to explore. Based on a 50 acre site in Epsom, Hobbledown is a unique farm park adventure, full of wonder, excitementand play.

The concept of Hobbledown is based around a mystical and magical fantasy tale where visitors can lose themselves in a world of make-believe. At its heart it is a story about adventure and mischief. The story is the basis on which the park and everything in it has been built. Nothing escapes the Hobblers quirky touch, from tables and benches to the houses the farm animals actually live in.

The story centres on Hobbledown being home to the Hobblers, fun fictional characters who live in spectacular play structures that all ages will want to explore. Even the animals are part of the fairytale in their themed houses, as no-one escapes Hobbledown's quirky touch!

The land on which Hobbledown is based has been farmland since medieval times.

In its most recent history, the site was best knows as Horton Park Farm, a children's petting farm which ceased trading in January 2012. It is home to more than 100 animals and a multitude of indoor and outdoor adventure play equipment.

In Hobbledown Village you will be able to explore the Hobblers houses and towers, check out the underground tunnels, test your skills on the Low Ropes Adventure or brave the Aerial Walkways. For our bigger visitors there is the Aerial 912_image2.jpgAdventure Course that will challenge the bravest of you!

The Hobbledown Barn houses two themed play areas with an indoor maze.

The Hobblings Play Village has mazes and role play areas as well as an Interactive Sand Play Zone.

And not forgetting The Mining Village, one of the main reasons the Hobblers came to Hobbledown - to search out the Crystallite stones. Like any mining area there are tunnels to explore, mazes to navigate and work to be done. Here you can help the Hobblers by turning the capstan to drive the water to help you find the magical stones. Watch out though, some cheeky Hobbler has mixed up some of the water spouts and you may end up getting wet!

As well as enjoying the innovative play equipment, visitors can check out the farm animals which range from miniature donkeys and Meerkats to otters and wallabies.
