Family fun

The Woodland Playground

The Woodland Playground is tucked away between Paxton House and the river Tweed. There is something for all ages, from baby swings and a wobbly bridge to a thrilling zip wire all in a shady sylvan setting, perfect for picnics.

Thrilling Zip Wire

Zzzzzzhhhh – speeding down the zip wire in the Woodland Playground at Paxton House is addictive.  Once you’ve tasted speed among the trees with the wind in your hair, you’ll want to get up and do it all over again.

Super Steep Slide

Zoom off the top of our super steep slide down the bank into the woods and you’ll feel close to flying. Just terrifying enough for adventurous kids and large enough if you just haven’t grown up yet. Don’t worry, if your small people are too small for our slide there is plenty else to entertain them.

Wobbly Rope Bridge

Fun, adventurous but safe, the wobbly bridge can be taken carefully by toddlers, speedily by bigger kids and with a big smile by parents and grandparents in search of their inner child.
