William’s Den is an exciting and unique visitor attraction providing families the freedom and space to play.
Do you remember being small and in awe of the spaces around you. In the eyes of a child, even the smallest garden seems like a big adventure. Imagine the excitement building when you give your kids the chance to step foot into William’s Den and see huge custom-built play areas unfold in front of them.
Our amazing natural play structures will satisfy their hunger to learn and explore new things. The feeling of excitement, curiosity, challenge and freedom to run wild, climb, find hidden places and be somewhere they’ll never forget for years to come.
A place where you can explore with them and see their faces light up with excitement and adrenalin as they whizz across fields on zip lines or appear from tunnels or show you their masterpiece Den building skills!
The Kitchen Table serves delicious home-made food, prepared from scratch using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Our scrumptious award-winning ice cream is home-made daily at William’s Den. Don't forget to try out one of our famous wood-fired pizzas!
Looking for somewhere to take the little ones whilst the big kids are at school? Come and join us every Thursday and Friday morning for our Term Time Play sessions and enjoy a free Americano or Tea with every adult ticket.
