Black Barn Toys & Games
Located at Bridge Farm Barns, the home of Corn Craft, Black Barn Toys & Games offers a wonderful selection of more traditional and out-of-the-ordinary toys, games and gifts.
There is a good range of educational and wooden toys, and larger items such as wooden kitchens and play tables can be ordered in for you. You can also find plenty of excellent stocking fillers for Christmas! "There is a real lack of independent toy shops in our area so we are trying to offer something that you won't necessarily find on the high street," says Caroline Gage of Black Barn Toys & Games. "Our focus is on more traditional toys but we also have a great selection of newly designed children's games and puzzles that you are not going to find in the big stores. A warm welcome awaits children and adults in our friendly shop, where we have a play table to keep the little ones amused whilst the grown ups have a good browse around."
A visit to Black Barn Toys & Games can also be tied in with a delicious snack or lunch in the Corn Craft Tea Room (a chip free zone!) where a children's menu is on offer. Bridge Farm Barns also have three other barns of goodies to browse around including an extensive gift shop, stylish garden and home accessories shop and a craft materials shop.
It’s only cold when you’re standing still…
Sarah from Xercise4Less gives Raring2go! some great ideas for family fun to keep fit and healthy. Don't get stuck indoors just because it is winter. Dark mornings, cold blustery evenings and it seems we would all rather reach for our duvet than even contemplate heading outdoors to get active! Remember it’s only cold when you’re standing still…
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
