Studfold shop


Our small Studfold shop at the Adventure Trail Reception has a lovely selection of reasonably-priced indoor and outdoor toys, including fairies, fairy houses and fairy accessories. You can buy fairy seedpaper to make wishes and plant in the fairy wish garden too.

If you’d like to borrow fairy wings or pixie hats, this is where you can pick them up. We also have a good selection of ice-creams, snacks, sweets and cold drinks to refresh you after all your adventures.
