There's plenty to do at Blake House Craft Centre starting with an excellent 9 hole miniature golf course with kid friendly features including fun ramps, cool bridges, cute windmills and intriguing wells, great for all ages and abilities… if they've got the patience!

Throughout the summer their other main draw is 10 acres of maize field with a cool maze cut into it: finally, an excuse to tell the kids to get lost! For a while, anyway.

The big outside jungle gym features assault course style equipment suitable for 4 to 12 year olds, requiring balance and strength skills to negotiate, so be prepared to lend a hand where required!

Plus the keen hobbyist can browse their great range of specialist arts and crafts shops, and there are a range of workshops and classes running weekly which include quilting, jewellery and beading and art classes.

And all year round you can catch seasonal activity days and locally significant events, including annual fun like the Halloween Pumpkin Hunt!
