Welcome to Barney’s Play!

We are a small family owned and operated indoor play area and role-play village. Our play area is suitable for all ages from babies, toddlers, preschoolers and the more grown up child. We are proud members of both The British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions (BALPPA) and Association of Indoor Play (AIP).


Barney’s offers a unique role play village (age 2+) Dedicated baby and toddler area, sensory area/toys, multi level climbing frame with twisty tube slide and rope bridge.


Barney’s offers FREE wifi, FREE parking, comfortable seating, hot and cold food and drinks, baby change facilities, bottle and baby food heating, and we accept all major credit & debit cards.


Unfortunately currently the Government does not allow us to encourage groups of more than 6 to meet indoors, therefore we will be unable to offer our Birthday/Celebration packages. However, you are still very welcome to book tickets online for our normal play sessions once we re-open.


‘We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.’

We have been working hard and making changes to ensure all our visitors and staff remain safe in the current climate. Things will be a little bit different at Barney’s and we will be constantly adapting to keep our guests safe. We are happy to be opening on 28th September. Please keep an eye on our social media, I will update when the booking system is live. It’s still being built!

Below are some of things we are doing to keep you and our staff safe. 😊

Risk assessments are in place with regular reviews

Training is being provided, with focus on Covid-19 and safety, staff needs accessed and support for our teams wellbeing

Guidance for anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 not to attend

Adult visitors and children aged 11 and over will be required to wear a face covering before entering and keep it on until they leave, except when eating or drinking or sat at your allocated table.

Temperatures may be checked on arrival along with enquiry into cold/flu and Covid symptoms. We ask that those unwell do not attend and arrange a visit for another day.

We ask that all guests follow social distancing measures

Guest numbers and capacity have been reduced to give more room to distance themselves from other families

Online bookings so we can control numbers and have test and trace information

Guests and the team have access to hand sanitisers and sinks at entrance, throughout the building and play area.

Able to isolate single use props that need cleaning, replacing or removing

Hygiene is always at the top of our agenda but disciplines have been strengthened with more frequent deep cleaning of props, high contact surfaces, Play Area, communal areas and rest rooms

Equipment to antimicrobial and antibacterial agents used secondary to primary cleaning with soap and water, makes it difficult for bacteria, viruses, fungi, spores and mould to reproduce.

These conform with the relevant British standards EN1276 & EN14476

Role play areas (individual rooms or vehicles) are restricted to one booked social bubble, to reduce the risk of items being shared between different groups of children.

Individual role play props can be checked out with staff from the coffee shop. We ask that these are checked back in at the end of your session to be sanitised.

All loose role play items will we swapped out at the end of each session to be cleaned and sanitised.

We ask that visitors arrive in the first 30 mins of their booked session, arriving and leaving ON TIME is critical to ensure all cleaning routines can be carried out, the correct safety advice given and that visitors are not overlapping

We are accepting contact less payments

Cafe menu and seating will be limited and tables will be allocated upon arrival.

At the beginning of every session we will provide guidance

We have to insist on adherence to the guidance to keep everyone safe

We aim to offer the highest levels of service and experience possible given the current circumstances. We ask that you remain polite and patient with our staff during this time as we are all still learning.
