The Parent Friendly Stays children have always loved a soft play area. Climbing frames, ride-on toys, ball pits, slides and the rest: an exhilarating way to spend a couple of hours charging around in a safe environment. Meanwhile, for a brief but precious few minutes, mum and dad might get the chance to sit and have a coffee without having to join in the fun!
