Attraction Information

The Den and The Glen is the new and improved version of The Storybook Glen and is on the same site.

Their multi-level all weather play den features loads of things for the kids to play with, including a tower style Climbing Wall, a 4 Lane Racing Astro Slide, Giant Ball Canyon and endless opportunities to climb and slide, run and hide.

Plus, dedicated toddler zone and Multi Sports Arena (football and basketball) for all ages to mix in. A kids' paradise. But there's more! With admission to the Den, comes admission to...

The Glen! Their outside area is the new and improved Storybook Glen! There are delightful characters from children's nursery rhymes and little house's straight from fairy tales to discover, scattered across the many miles of pleasant green space.

The landscaping is fanciful too and there are luscious plants and grand trees aplenty. There's also a play area with swings, roundabouts and slide chutes. Plus not to forget the livestock to visit in Old MacDonald's Farm!

There's a cafe area in the Den of course, but in the Glen you're allowed to bring a picnic instead, so it can be a really cheap day out if you need it to be!

Great time was had by all 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent outdoor and indoor activities the day was great fun however it was spoilt a little by the rain. The indoor activities were suitable for our toddler and 6 year old grandson while it was raining. They both also enjoyed their lunch and were ready to go again. Must visit again to get the full potential of the outdoor fun.
