Summer Family Fun

If you’re looking for things to do over the summer that won’t break the bank, for starters, why not enjoy a game of Minigolf? A great summer family activity on our 9 hole course and despite increased prices everywhere at the moment, for the fifth year in a row, we have managed to keep our prices the same to help out! 

Please visit Artisan’s Hub for your club hire. It costs just £2.50 for children and £3.50 for adults, so for just £12, a family of 4 (2+2) can play. Don’t forget the £5 cash deposit for the club hire though, but we’ll give that back when you return your clubs afterwards. Next to the Minigolf, we also have our play area so the kids can run off a bit more steam whilst they’re here! 

If that’s not enough, check out our rock hunt! The lovely team at Artisan’s Hub have painted and hidden the stones around the craft centre shops ready for you to find. Just pick up one of their forms, then see how many you can track down. When you find a stone, write the number that’s on the bottom of the stone onto your form and when you’ve found them all, pop it back to claim a small, sweet prize! Thank you to Ali for organising this all for FREE. Happy hunting!

After you’ve looked around the great selection of shops here, you can treat everyone to a light lunch, piece of cake or ice-cream from the Sconch Tea Rooms and check out the amazing selection of drinks available all on their special summer menu. 

We are also pleased to be welcoming the ECC mobile library for their Summer Reading Challenge here on Thursday 17th August, 1-5pm. Make sure you’re signed up and why not visit some of their other great venues they are visiting on their road trip this summer?

 We look forward to seeing you!
