Head out on the M62 outside Hull to discover William’s Den, a new indoor-outdoor play barn and play area in North Cave, Brough, East Yorkshire
“We thought our day out at William’s Den was absolutely brilliant. We had great fun climbing on the ropes and playing on climbing frames and the sand pits inside before going outside to discover a massive field with loads of hidden bits to seek out. We climbed over logs and went through secret tunnels and got to shoot across the fields on a zip wire!”Martha, Gracie and Ferne, Yorkshire's Best Adventures kids
What William’s Den say:
The idea for creating an exciting and unique visitor attraction really came from hosting birthday parties for our son in the garden and hearing the shrieks of joy from his friends as they relished the freedom and space to play outside. They never wanted to go home. An idea was born.
We’d both grown up on farms and we both remember rather nostalgically having vast amounts of freedom to play outside in all weathers, for hours on end. Along with siblings, cousins and friends, our childhood years were spent endlessly exploring on foot and by bike, building dens and using our wild imaginations to entertain each other for hours and days.
When we were sharing ideas for the type of family visitor attraction we wanted to create, our own childhood experiences were never far from the surface. It became abundantly clear that we had to create an environment for children to play inside and out whatever the weather, where they could run wild and experience the freedom to roam, and while the kids were doing that, we wanted the grown ups to enjoy being outdoors with their children and appreciate everything else on offer.
The den is a unique indoor play space for children of all ages, constructed from responsibly sourced wood, and housed inside a huge barn, The Den has been designed and hand crafted by a team of highly skilled play experts. From the Tree House to the Forest Glade and the Eagles Nest to the Rainmaker, The Den is sure to thrill.
We have wide-open spaces and wonderful views at William’s Den for children to explore to their hearts content and connect with nature. They can run wild, enjoy water and sand play, climb wooden structures, whizz on zip wires and spend hours building dens from scratch. Perfect for fun family adventures.
