Cobbs Play Barn opened in October 2015 and is situated just behind the Farm Shop and Café in Hungerford. It has its own dedicated parking area and is accessed via a small bridge. The entrance door is operated with a push release button (only accessible on the inside by the Play Barn staff) so you don’t need to worry about little ones trying to escape.

The layout of the Play Barn is very different to traditional soft play centres. There are booths down one side with picnic style benches in the middle; the wooden play frame is situated at the far end of the Barn. Shoe storage is provided and there are hooks at the end of the booths where a selection of dress up clothes can be found. Although small, children will still enjoy climbing the structure and exploring what is has to offer. The Play Barn is suitable for toddlers and children up to 8 years and there is a small ‘soft zone’ area for very young children. We took a WestBerkshireMums three year old for a play; she had fun on the lower level of the play frame but she did need some help getting up to the higher sections; however, there were some slightly older children there who had no problems with this!

The Play Barn has its own café menu serving a small but varied selection of dishes for the kids and the adults. Breakfast options start at £1.95 and prices for kids’ main meals start at £4.95, all children’s meals come with unlimited squash or water and are served with mixed veg sticks. The adult options start at £4.95 and include Cobbs homemade quiche and sourdough toasties. There’s a selection of homemade cakes, slices and biscuits on offer as well as a variety of coffees. There are plenty of highchairs available to use and there is an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities. Step stools are provided in the toilets so that little hands can reach the sinks. Bottle warming facilities are also available. There is free Wi-Fi on offer and there are USB charging points at every table.
