I could not recommend them highly enough. Fantastic range of toys that are always clean, Holly is wonderful, we are always greeted with a friendly welcome and no matter how rushed off her feet she is as she is always keeping the place tidy Holly always makes time to have a chat with us making it the most relaxed and friendly group I have ever been to. I also love that it has such an open time to come from 09:30-14:30 staying for as long as you want for the same price making it possible for many to come around naps. also want to mention how lovely it is here in the summer we love to make a day of it as there is plenty to keep the children entertained and we have a picnic there too. I could go on forever with the reasons why I like it here so much, but would definitely recommend you see for yourself.

Our first time going to Castle Tots today- been meaning to come for ages. Such a great set up with indoor and outdoor space and a variety of toys and ride-ons. And the bouncy castles are great too. Very friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere- not too overstimulating! Would choose to come here over the traditional soft play that has loud music and bright lights any day! Thankyou :) and we'll be back soon with my eldest

I am a Registered Childminder and take my minded children to Castle Tots every few weeks. We always have a wonderful time. There is a range of toys and resources for babies to preschoolers and all of the equipment is spotlessly clean. It's lovely to have somewhere like this in New Town.

I go to castle tots most Thursdays. My daughter and granddaughter love it. Holly and her mum are so welcoming.
