Wonder Woods Adventure Playground
After enjoying the special activities children can then find their way to Wonder Woods where younger children will have fun transporting super-soft sand and pumping water or letting their imagination run wild in the playhouse. There are rocking deer, a wibbly wobble dish, seesaw and slide too.
Larger kids can throw their energy into climbing the Wonder Woodpile and twisty rope tangle. There’s also the 9m Pyramid Tower to climb and slide off, tree house, wavy slide, giant nest swing and spooky tunnel. And do you think they will be brave enough to try the 50-metre zip wire? Of course they will.
Parents can relax at our picnic tables and giant log benches. Food, drinks and snacks are only metres away at The Chilterns Pit Stop Cafe, fully equipped with bathrooms, baby-changing facilities and high-speed WIFI.
Food and Drink
Our Pit Stop Cafe in the Visitor Centre will be open every day with hot and cold drinks including freshly brewed Illy Coffee, sandwiches, snacks and ice cream. The Pantry Tearoom will also be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays where you can buy light lunches, scones and soup too!
Dogs are welcome at Stonor Park although we ask that they are kept on a lead as it is home to a large herd of wild deer. Dogs are not allowed in the House, the actual Wonder Woods adventure playground or the Formal Gardens however we have ‘dog parking’ stations where you can attach dog leads outside these areas.
