Bath Leisure Centre Better Play

The leisure centre in Bath has a new indoor soft play area. It is enclosed behind a glass screen with child safe locks. This is ok if you are in the soft play with the kids, but not so easy if your child is a little more independent and you would usually want to sit and enjoy a cuppa whilst they play. It has 5 storeys (you can't see the children when they are at the top). Open everyday 10am - 4pm this is a good place to pop for an hour. You get a free tea or coffee with entry and there is talk of a food offering coming soon. Be aware that there are time limits when it is busy. Cost: Off peak 2-4 - £3.00, adults £2.50

The Barn

The Barn is located on the A4, Between Bathford & Box. There is a cafe and various boutique shops as well as Broadlands Cider shop. The soft play is a small room with ball pool and padded flooring. Suitable for under 5s it is usually quiet so ideal for littlies who are happy to sit in a ballpool or roll down a cushioned slide. It is closed Mondays and Tuesdays and be warned, it can be a little chilly. There is a cute play area outside too. The restaurant is also usually quiet and not massively family friendly, but you can order food to be delivered to the soft play where there are tables and chairs. Cost £3.50 per child.

Southside Soft Play

Southside Soft Play is in the Youth Hub. It is for children under the age of 8. It is quite little but perfect for an hour of letting off steam, with a slide and ball pool and padded climbing. There is a great little cafe serving super affordable toasties, jacket potatoes and cakes. Because the soft play is free they do encourage you to buy something in the cafe, which is definitely fair enough. Definitely worth a visit with the little ones during school hours.

It is not often you find a soft play this big and well maintained for under £3 for a pre-schooler. Go Bananas is based in the Writhlington Leisure Centre in Radstock. A bit of a drive from Bath, but well worth the effort. It is clean, friendly and above all fun. There is an under 3's play area as well as two large play areas for over 3s (although in our experience under 3 can have fun with parents in this section during the quieter term time periods). There is a well stocked cafes serving jackets, paninis and a variety of other goodies. Also a great birthday party venue. Cost : Off peak 2 years + £3.40, under 1s 50p, adults free

Set in a huge barn at Farrington Farm, the play barn offers a farm themed soft play with cafe. In addition to the farm shop and farm park (separate admissions apply) the soft play is large and clean. There is a death slide, ball cannons and baby and toddler zones. Seating takes the form of picnic benches and allows good visibility. Food is of good quality, supplied by the farm shop, with good healthy choices. A bit of a drive from Bath, but a good day out. Cost: off peak 2-5 years £3.50, adults 50p

Over in Bristol, Play Space is a large soft play with equipment to suit all ages. There is a spacious cafe area in the middle which allows viewing of kids wherever they are around the room. There is lots of space for bigger kids, as well as a toddler and baby areas, wendy house and road with cars and trucks to play with. They often offer craft activities throughout the day for your little ones to do painting and other crafts. Play Space can be really busy during peak times, with a time limit imposed with wrist bands. The cafe serves hot drinks and a variety of hot and cold food. The equipment is clean and well maintained, however, taking multiple children peak time can be pretty pricey. Cost: off-peak under 5s £5.50, adults £1.30

Boomerang, Bowerhill Melksham

Boomerang is a large soft play on the outskirts of Melksham. There are separate baby, toddler and large kids areas so it is a great place for kids with a range of ages. However, as a result it can get pretty hectic in the holidays and you won't necessarily have eyes on all the kids at the same time! There is loads of equipment including a bouncy castle and a large amount of seating for adults. Food is ok, there is a flexible menu for kids and Starbucks coffee for the adults! Cost: Off peak under 5 - £5.50, adults £1.30

Party and Play, Trowbridge

This soft play is designed for under 8s. It is smaller than some, but this means children can roam freely and enjoy the equipment whilst you enjoy a coffee! There is a soft play tower and a separate baby area. There is also a bouncy castle. Set in an old church, it is a beautiful building with a family run feel. The food menu is reasonable and hot drinks good. It is a nice place to enjoy with pre-schoolers without worrying about big kids barging them out of the way. Worth checking before going at the weekend as it is not big enough to accommodate the public and parties. Cost: off peak under 4s £4.00, adults free
