My 1st Tea Room has been specially designed for those sticky little fingers in mind, a soft play zone where parents or grandparents, babies and tots can enjoy a (semi) sophisticated delicious selection of sandwiches and some home made sweet treats. 

Situated in the stunning Grade II* listed building ”The Proof House” built in the mid 1760s, you will find an array of soft play equipment designed for baby to age 5 years, with a play frame, role play area and a dinosaur castle to keep them entertained.  

Parents can relax knowing their little ones can make as much noice and mess as they desire as My 1st Tea Room is designed just for them. 

Our usual Stay and play will operate the same with usual entrance fees with business as usual with an improved menu
