We have many different facilities including; an indoor swimming pool, paddocks area with ponies, donkey’s, pigs, sheep and chickens, café area, sensory adventure playground, sensory rooms and leisure barn. Activities could range from a long walk through the country or meeting our animals at our very own farm. You could be taking part in a swimming lesson at our pool or you might be having an art or music lesson outside in our vast grounds.
