We are pleased to welcome you back to our soft play area at Dobbies Garden Centres.

Following updated guidance from the Government, we have made some changes including social distancing measures. This includes removing our ball pits and any loose items.

We are also restricting entry to children aged 2 and above only so that we can restrict adult entrance into the play area. 

We are not allowing under 2s at this time.  They can, however, still sit with parents or guardians at a table.

For the safety of our team and customers we also ask that:

  • If you have a temperature or feel unwell, please do not enter the restaurant or soft play
  • You keep a safe distance from others at all times, following social distance guidelines
  • You wash hands regularly
  • Masks are worn at all times when not at a table (this includes within the soft play in England)

We are limiting the number of children in our soft play by 50% of our capacity and entry will be at set time slots, to allow us to carry out cleaning through the day.


Booking your session:

Please select your session from the choices below.  Until the end of September these will be 90 minute sessions.  From 1st October we are changing to 60 minute sessions and the ticket price will change accordingly.

Payment for your session will be taken at the till when you arrive on the day.

We ask that you vacate the area promptly at the end of your session to allow our team to clean.

Walk in spaces may be available however we recommend pre booking to avoid disappointment.

Please get in touch with the store to cancel your booking if you are unble to attend at your booked time.  Your space will only be held in your booked session for 15 minutes before we open out to others.
