Welcome to The Playshed!

The Playshed opened to the public in April 2014. Our mission was to provide a fun filled indoor play and party venue packed with adventurous activity for children. Whether you are visiting with friends or family or attending one of the many Birthday Parties we host, we provide a safe and clean environment, with deliciously prepared fresh food, sweet treats, and amazing coffee.

About The Playshed

With two custom-designed play frames, one for babies and toddlers, and one for juniors we can accommodate up to 112 children at any one time with seating for all.

The Playshed offers soft play, childrens parties and a coffee shop serving a selection of fresh homemade food, with drinks and snacks and excellent coffee, all sourced from local suppliers. The atmosphere and service offers something for kids and adults alike so everyone can enjoy their visit.

We have something for the kids and the adults so that everyone can enjoy a visit. We can also provide exclusive private hire for school and community groups, playgroups, and any other child-related activities as well as hire of our party room.
