- Is there much (anything) for little kids to do in or near glentress?
4 and 6 year old, before you say it we will be taking the bikes and they will ride a bit, but my cousins over from Aussie and we want to get a decent ride in, so the mrs will have to entertain the jam eaters for a while, they’re too young for go ape,, Edinburgh zoos too far, any other suggestions?Posted 4 years agogeologistMember
Second the osprey place in gt itself, its a tiny place, but the warden got loads of birds feet and eggs and various natural artifacts out of the drawers for my 4 year old to look at last year. He loved it. I got a lap of the red in whilst my son and wife went there and the cafe. 🙂
Dont forget the cafe in gt has a set of the massive jenga, kids love that.Posted 4 years agoMrs ToastMember
If the weather’s a bit grim, there’s a great pottery painting cafe in Peebles:
I painted Mr Toast an awesome mug whilst he rode Glentress. I would have been riding with him, but it was after the infamous “Falling off Pennels Vennel” incident…Posted 4 years agoivnickkateMember
Hi AWS, there’s a swimming pool, with small kids pool,
a small soft play centre down the Northgate, or a bigger one about 10 miles away at leadburn.
check this link http://www.wellybooters.co.uk/ for something a little different.
Directly opposite Glentress is the Sustrans old railway trail, it’s tarmac, and goes to Peebles, ideal for the kids to cycle on.Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
The Leadburn pub up the road to Edinburgh (about 15 mins) has a soft play area which is a decent size. Slightly lame suggestion relative to the wholesome activities suggested thus far, but bairns do enjoy the soft plays and it’s easy to read the paper whilst keeping an eye on them.Posted 4 years ago
