Our child friendly facilities.
At Whalesborough, we have a whole range of things to keep your children occupied during your stay.
We have two swimming pools which your children will spend hours enjoying. One is a heated indoor pool and the other is outdoors in the sun.
For younger children we have a lovely Pets Corner which has chickens, ducks, pygmy goats and pigs for the children to enjoy. We collect the eggs and feed the animals 2-3 times a week depending on the time of year at 9.30am which children can help us do. We also have a people carrying trailer to take children on tractor and trailer rides to the beach and around the farm(weather and ground conditions permitting). We now have an Under 6’s playroom filled with toys, books and DVDs to keep your young ones entertained!
We have a huge indoor play barn for older children with ride on tractors, pool table, air hockey, table football, table tennis, darts and much more. There is also a badminton court, a basket ball hoop and an astro turf football pitch.
We also have an outdoor play area which provides several climbing frames, swings and rocking toys. There is also an outside sandpit called ‘Little Widemouth’ which means children do not have to go to the beach to make sand castles.
There are two full size tennis courts which anyone can use free of charge.
Down at the Weir, 500 yards from the cottage, there is a lovely adventure playground for children, based on a wildlife theme, just by the fishing lake.
Play and climb on the birdhide lookout or use the tunnels of the Badger set to hide from your family and friends or swing on the Heron’s nest swing with your brothers and sisters. There is also a rocking frog and otter all within viewing range of the picnic tables, so parents can keep an eye on the little ones while enjoying a coffee, cream tea or meal. There is also an interactive wildlife centre inside the Weir, with lots of fun games for children to play on, along with visiting falconry displays and sheepdog displays through the Summer season.
