Family Day Out: Hatton Adventure World

The lovely people at Hatton Adventure World in Warwickshire offered us some tickets to go and visit them last weekend. If I'm honest, I have to admit I had never heard of Hatton Adventure World, even though they are only a 45 minute drive from our home in Leicestershire.

On arrival at the park there are some beautiful little shops selling a range of different items from antiques to old fashioned sweets; Ruby was in too much of a hurry to get into the adventure park that we didn't get a chance to go into the shops until nearer home time.



As soon as we entered the park, Ruby decided to head straight for the farm park area of the site. We found the farm park to be very well looked after and clean compared to some other parks we have visited, we also were surprised at how many people were around to assist if help was needed.


The farm park had so many animals but the girls much preferred seeing the baby chicks and guinea pigs, which you are able to handle at certain times of the day.


After spending time in the farm park, we decided to stop off at one of the restaurants, we were impressed that there were so many home-made items on the menu and I ate a very yummy cheese bake whilst Phil had fish and chips and Ruby and Lottie shared chicken nuggets with chips and beans. I think it's safe to say the food was a hit as clean plates were left over. Price wise, an adult meal was approximately £8 which I feel is reasonably priced based on the quality and the portion size.


There is a very large and clean soft play area within the restaurant, which is based in a huge barn; I was very impressed to see a separate area for Lottie's age group, including some sensory play activities. Ruby loved the bigger slides and I think hubbie did too!

 


We then explored the various different rides and attractions; Ruby thoroughly enjoyed herself. There was so much to see and do including bouncy castles, toy ride on digger and tractor courses and a helter skelter to name a few.

When we entered the park, we were handed a map and an Easter egg hunt check list. Scattered around the park were 12 big bunny signs, each with there own unique colour. Ruby loved going around spotting the bunnies and writing the colours on her sheet. Lottie particularly enjoyed the chocolate bunny that was given to her for completing the  list!






On exiting the park, we sopped by a beautiful shop that sold lots of traditional wooden toys; there was something to suit everyone's budget.

I think it's safe to say that we will definitely be coming back soon. Tickets are priced at £11.95 for adults and £12.95 for children.


Ruby + Lottie Rating: 9/10
