Tumblestone Hollow at Stonor

Tumblestone Hollow at Stonor

Date of Adventure: 13 Mar, 2023

If you haven’t been to this EPIC adventure playground then here’s the lowdown: High level double walkways link to the central towers with rope climbs, balance logs, ladders, bridges, climbing walls, tunnels and poles branching off. All built around the trees and following a magical theme, watch out for the mystical carvings in the wood and the stone circle in the playground. The popular double slide tower is still there and has been connected to the main equipment via a bridge and walkway. Aimed at children up to the age of 12, my two older boys were off happily navigating the equipment on their own whilst my little one needed supervision and help climbing – leave your dignity at the gate people, you’ll be squeezing and squashing yourself through some pretty tight spaces!

The original equipment is still a hit, but now the little kids can have it to themselves whilst the older ones run wild on the adventure playground. The water play always attracts quite the crowd with some serious engineering going on with bridges being constructed and canals dug out of the sand. Bring spare clothes, sleeves and trousers will get wet; and so they should with this much fun and exploration! The zip wire, baby swings, nest swings and tunnel are all still a cause for delight.

Do leave time to explore the surrounding parkland, it’s included in your ticket and is beautiful.

Did you

Know?

Oxford Preservation Trust bought the Victoria Arms pub in 1959 to save the nearly derelict building. Now fully renovated, this rural gem re-opened in 1984. It's still standing proud and serving Oxford’s pub-goers every day!

Fancy buying me a ko-fi?
