Enjoy a family day out at Walby Farm Park, only 15 minutes drive from Hidden River Cabins its and excellent place to take the kids. There is an indoor soft play if the weather is a little chilly and on a warmer day there is an outdoor play park with a large sand pit, trampolines, tractors, farm animals and our favourite goat racing at certain times of the year. Its definitely worth a full day there if you have children so go early and enjoy a fun filled day.
Just off the M6 at junction 44, Houghton Hall Garden Centre is one of the things to do Carlisle. It has a variety of things to do, including a fantastic farm shop with all sorts of local produce. There is also a grocery store that sells very fresh produce, a toy shop, a world in miniature museum and Maidenhead aquatics where you can feed the fish with young children and look at the fish on sale – thats if you haven’t caught some in the river already!
