The children's activities are organised and managed in-house by
our experienced professional team. In addition we bring in
sporting experts and industry professionals who run workshops such
as circus skills, bush-craft, puppetry, peddle-Ppwer painting, felting
to name a few.
These images are just a snap-shot of some of the exciting
activities we offer. On exploring the Estate you will find a
number of Bug Hotels, a wormery, chickens, rabbits, bees and a
large allotment. We like to visit these areas with the children and
often base our activities around them. Whilst our sessions are
very much planned we also allow for them to unfold organically
allowing for that vital off-piste freedom of expression.
Our sessions are available exclusively to our residents and letting's guests. Our core group is for ages 4-10 years and activities are planned with this age in mind. However older children are welcome. Younger children may also come along if accompanied by an adult. Please note this isn't a creche facility but a children's event and activity programme. For babysitting and nanny services please contact our concierge team here.
If you can't make our planned activities we are happy to create a bespoke menu of activities or a companion service for smaller groups of children 4+ too. Bushcraft, Archery, fishing and other outdoor pursuits can be arranged but these do get very booked up so as much notice as possible is advised. Simply contact us to discuss.
Our team-leader for the younger age groups is Janinka who has worked at The Lakes for 6 years now. Our experienced team comprise a mix of male and female carers. Between us we also speak Italian, French and German, are all DBS checked, have first aid qualifications and full insurance of course. All of the activities are risk assessed.
And of course whilst we are looking after your children you can indulge in some poolside relaxation, a massage, treatment, lunch or a gym session. Everyone wins!
What you say...
"Enormous thanks for such a wonderful couple of days. The children had a ball and have already asked to come back. As I said Amelia said it was better than Scooby Doo! Your activities were fab and I've picked up lots of fun craft ideas. I'm going to have to get more pipe cleaners! Especially thank you for making Bertie's Birthday so special. You really went the extra mile and it was most appreciated."- Tilda Yerburg
