When booking online for our indoor play, please book in everyone who will be entering Hootz House, not just those who wish to play (as this is how we measure capacity).

Carer prices

Pensthorpe allows free entrance to one essential carer, who provides proof of carer status, when accompanying a full paying person who is physically or mentally impaired. For our definition of a carer please visit our FAQs page.
