Fun For The Kids
Beacon Hill is a paradise for children of all ages providing a range of children’s facilities and activities. We have an indoor heated Games Room with a pool table, table football table, tennis table and air hockey table. There is also a TV and leather sofas for children to relax and make friends.
Adjoining the games room is a covered adventure playground with a wood-chip floor. There is a climbing frame, monkey ladders, tower, swings, a see-saw, Wendy House and Tarzan course.
We have a cricket net with hard base for use in all weathers, a large football pitch with two sets of netted goal posts and a 14 foot diameter trampoline with safety net, and a croquet lawn with mallets and balls.
The Harry Potter Trail in the 40 acre wood is exceptionally popular with adults and children alike and has given hours of fun.
Children can make dens in the wood and light camp fires to cook sausages. There are frying pans ready in the Games Room should you wish to cook supper in the woods.
Guests are welcome to feed the ponies and goats carrots and pet them.
Meg’s Lake is a short walk from the cottages and is set in a 20 acre nature reserve.
The lake is full of tadpoles and then frogs in the spring and children have all sorts of fun here, including those families who choose to swim in the lake in the summer! The water is champagne clear and a lot warmer than the North Sea! There is a Barbecue area set up at the far end of the lake with natural stone seats. The views to the south and west are stunning.
There is a locking bike shed or leave your bikes safely outside your cottage.
Our tennis court is available all year round and we have some rackets for those without any, but please try and bring your own if possible. We also offer a tennis coach.
As I say, and it is a quote from a guest, “What a paradise for children!”
