Rules of Play

An imaginative children’s playground at heart

A purpose built, recently extended indoor soft play Fun Barn with dedicated sensory room, under 5s area, party rooms and in-house cafe with a unique outdoor summer Beach adventure play zone

At Bury Lane Fun Barn we know that sometimes a few helpful guidelines can make all the difference to guarantee a fantastic family trip, so please read our five recommendations and our Terms & Conditions below to help you get the most out of the Fun Barn

Rules of Play

1. Relax

Bury Lane Fun Barn is all about having fun with your kids and relaxing whilst they have fun, so please do enjoy our sofas, treat yourself to a coffee and make the most of it.

2. Watch

Your children are your responsibility – whilst there are always staff on hand in the cafe and around the Barn to help, it is your job to make sure that your children are where they need to be and playing safely.

3. Dress

Socks must be worn at all times by children and adults using the play equipment and no shoes are allowed in the play areas. Our slides are fast so friction burns can happen; to help avoid this, we recommend that parents make sure their childrens’ arms and legs are covered before using the slides and play area.

4. Contact Us

We know how much goes into planning an outing with the kids and that the smoother it goes, the happier everyone is. So, please do call or email us with any questions (or just drop in to the Fun Barn when shopping at Bury Lane Farm Shop) to make sure you have the info you need.

5. Take Care

We’re all about fun times to remember. Please encourage your children to consider the enjoyment of others they are playing with and share – aggressive behaviour and bullying will not be tolerated and may result in guests being asked to leave immediately.

Sensory Room Rules of Play

The Sensory Room is for babies under 2 years old or children with additional needs under 10 years old.
You must be prepared to show a local authority additional needs card or similar.
Please note, if there is only one adult with a baby or additional needs child plus another child/children aged 2 years and over, wanting to use the main soft play, regrettably you will not be able to use the Sensory Room as children cannot be left unattended in either area.
