The Childrens Play Area
This outdoor play area at Limefitt Park has a slide, swings, see-saw, sand pit, scramble net and a zip wire – in fact just about everything you need to keep young children entertained. You won’t find an adventure playground set in more spectacular scenery anywhere!
The River Pool
The River Pool at Limefitt Park is always a great hit with children of all ages. Normally slow flowing and waist-deep water turn this into a sort of open air swimming pool with overhanging rope swings. Please ensure that young children are properly supervised at all times in the vicinity of the river pool. At times of heavy rain the beck can flow very deep and very fast and at these times the pool is unsuitable for play activities.
The Football Field & Badminton Court
Limefitt park has ample open space and some of it is given over to a sports area where you can join in a game of football or play a few games of badminton whilst enjoying the amazing views.
Payphones – are available near the Limefitt Park shop
Watch this video of a badger visiting one of our lodges in broad daylight and you will see why!
The park management deliberately set aside large areas of the park from cultivation or development in order to provide a haven a wide variety of flora and fauna.
The result is that if you remain observant you will often see animals that are considered rare in more urban environments.
The golden rule is keep still and let nature come to you!
