Newby's exciting Adventure Garden for Children has been thoughtfully and safely designed for children of all ages, from the paddling pool, sandpit and swings for toddlers through to climbing frames and bridges, an aerial slide and pedalo boats for the older children. And of course, Newby's famous Miniature Railway is for children and adults alike, of all ages!

Tarantella interactive water play area also provides hours of fun. Six jets of water spring out from the ground, forming arcs of different height and length, making a spidery pattern in three dimensions. Then suddenly the jets are cut off, so that the arcs of water dive into the holes like performing eels.

Some parts of the children's adventure garden comprising many slides, climbing frames, swings, sandpits, are suitable for handicapped users.

Access to the house is by tour only but worth an exploration once they're tired out playing.
