What an amazing place! I visited with my kids aged 5 and 7 and have to say I had as much fun as they did! Great range of craft activities to try, very welcoming and helpful staff and a great atmosphere. My little one loved the play toys which he could have fun with whilst his painting dried and the...

If you ever wanted an alternative activity then this is it. The only problem is, once you go once you need to go back again and again because unfortunately it doesn't stay open 24 hours a day!! I was on holiday close by and popped in to craft monkeys as an alternative activity for a bad weather day. Several hours... More

I visited with my boyfriend and wasn't too sure if we'd be welcomed as we were visiting without children. We were instantly made to feel welcome and had so much fun. It really is enjoyable for any age!

The only place I have visited where everyone gets involved, so much better than taking the grandchildren and just simply waiting until they have finished playing. A surprising number of the twenty to thirty age group joining the children and pensioners and having fun and being creative. Staff excellent, very attentive and helpful but no pressure, all in all easily... More

I came with my friends two girls and we decided to do some painting of different ornaments. The lady was very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Would definitely visit again if I am in Penrith again.

Its a lovely place to go with the kids, my son is just three but he was telling us if we could go back the next day but its impossible because we are from glasgow. The only problem is you only get an hours parking which means you need to be done within an hour.

My friend had organised this activity as a way for my little bridesmaids and other children who were attending my wedding to get to know each other and create something for a Wedding present. We all decorated ceramic bells with paint and had a real laugh doing it! We were allowed to bring our own food and had a demonstration... More

We came back again on our holiday as the kids enjoyed it so much last time. They used the potters wheel and had a go at decoupatch.
