Free Fun at Frosts Garden Centres

The kids and I are almost 5 weeks through our 6-7 week Summer Holiday and days out and activities are getting a little sparse on the ground. We've done most things we'd planned to do and I think we're all getting a little fed up of doing pretty much the same thing everyday, at home, just the three of us - anybody else feeling the same?!

Frosts Garden Centres have been a bit of a life-saver for me this Summer! We discovered their 'Beach' last year at our local store in Willington, Bedfordshire, and they've returned this year, bigger and better. It's completely free to enter and they have an enormous sand-pit with a cover, a selection of ride-on's and cosy coupe's to play in, a mini golf course, a couple of playhouses, a mini cafe/shop, some animals (rabbits and alpaca's) and plenty of seating all around. They also run activities, costing around £6, where the children can craft and create with a snack and a drink.

We've spent quite a few morning's and afternoon's there and it's been a lot of fun for the kids and entirely free (minus a drink and the diesel to drive there) - brilliant! My two have really enjoyed playing with the other children, looking at the animals and having a go at the activities set out by Frosts. I'd definitely recommend popping down and having a look, they have stores in Willington (Bedforshire), Woburn Sands (Buckinghamshire), Brampton (Cambridgeshire) and Millets Farm (Oxfordshire) and they all have a wonderful Beach to visit and enjoy :)

  1. What a fantastic thing to do for the children, and even better for the parents. We have our first official six week summer holiday next year, already thinking what can we do during that time! #CountryKids

    1. It's quite daunting at the start thinking of how you can fill the weeks up! I hope this Summer has been great for you :) x

  2. That looks brilliant! Our local garden centres often have play areas, but nothing quite as impressive as that - great idea!

  3. I wish we had one of these garden centres near us, what a great way to while away a few hours x

  4. What an impressive garden centre! Free fun sounds brilliant and it looks like the children are having a great time too. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

  5. WOW! This looks fab hun! I would have been there everyday with my two little ones and £6 isn't too bad for some activities. Brilliant fun xxx

  6. That's bank holiday sorted then, thanks ;)

  7. What a great idea - they're soon going to have parents keen for them to open garden centres across the country!

  8. Awww so generous of them to have this area for free! Not a lot of places are free nowadays =( #countrykids
