Overview
More
The Play Farm is Cheltenham's largest Soft Play, fully refurbished in January 2018 with extended Play Frames in Baby and Toddler areas while a sensory light area wows the littlest ones. We take great pride in our restaurant/Cafe offering adults and children's food that's a cut above the rest. We also offer children's themed birthday parties that have a great reputation for miles around.

Parked across the road in Matalan (£2 for 2 hours). My first visit so chose a Tuesday afternoon and it was fairly quiet. 2.5-year-old daughter had plenty of fun on the activities. The entrance price was irrelevant as it was all about having a good...More

The play farm is a great soft play centre for kids of all ages as the separate areas keep the ages apart. Sometimes bigger kids go into the baby and toddler areas as all soft play but found this rarer here. Soft play areas itself...More

I took my nearly 3-year-old daughter during half term. I expected it to be busy, and it was when I arrived (10:20). By 10:45 it was absolute bedlam. There must have been upwards of 60 kids there, in a small space. Because it was school...More

Took the grandchildren for a treat and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.. Great time climbing and sliding and generally letting off steam.

This really is a great day out for kids. Lots of fun climbing, sliding, crawling to be had for toddlers and older kids. Nice menu and snacks on offer. However, beware of the kids unsupervised by lazy parents, they can bully and restrict the smaller...More

Can get busy at peak times so it's difficult to get a table. Some seats look dirty and are in need of refurbishing as is some areas of carpet. Prices reasonable for two hour slot. Prices of food also reasonable. The children enjoyed their visit...More

Hi, please note that the Play Farm is under new management and following an extensive refurb in early January, we're confident that revisiting us would result in a more positive opinion. Please see the updated images at www.playfarm.co.uk

Please don't let your children wear the grip socks on the slides here as they can catch on the surface. We saw a few kiddies almost come to harm with these stupid grip socks. Think more staff should be available at top and bottom of...More

This place should be great but it's not. Poor value for a grubby play area with awful customer service. Plenty of other better places to go

Went with my daughter and her cousin, the photos really do falter this place, unlike the tardis...it's a lot smaller on the inside. You pay for adults and children to enter and everything is geared up for pester-power, children have cakes and fruit shoots displayed...More
