“Disappointed toddler”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Website advertised all sorts of daily events - none of which are avaiable "out of season". Staff made no apology, just said "its not busy enough".

I am sorry that your toddler had a 'disappointing' time at the Playbarn, and did not enjoy the three tier soft play. Unfortunately, we are unable to run some or all or our activities outwith the busy periods and I apologise for any confusion caused, and hope that we might see you again at the Playbarn.

“Great for the little ones!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Great facility, nice toddler area as well as stuff for the bigger kids too. Food seemed good value but felt the hot drinks for a bit expensive. My two kids loved it here (ages 3 & 1) especially as it was wet two of the days we visited Arran.

“Good entertainment”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great wet afternoon with 4 and 2 year old. Liked the mix of indoor and outdoor areas. Could maybe do with a comfy area for parents sit rather than tables but otherwise great.

“Very Good!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This looked like great fun for kids of all ages.
Especially liked the "toddlers only" area - perfect for our 6 month old!
Friendly staff and nice little cafe area for the grown ups!

“A lovely extra facility for small people”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We didn't use the Play Barn but we asked to be shown round as we wanted to check out the children's facilties in case we return with our grandhcildren. This is a new building with a good sized soft play area and other games, al spotlessly clean. There is a little self service cafe and doors out to a lovely new play ground.
