Home from Home…except we’ll make the coffee

Actually, It’s All About You

…and your family, of course. We welcome families with children of all ages, and there’s nothing we love more than to see children spending time in TurtleDove with mum, dad, granny & grandad, and family friends. The cafe itself is most suited to children aged 6 and under just now, although we will be increasing our programme for older children.

Unlimited Playtime

You’re welcome to stay at TurtleDove for as long as you like (or until closing time at least!), and we pride ourselves on a home from home atmosphere. Grown-ups can enjoy a delicious coffee with friends, and children get to engage in some free play.

What’s On at TurtleDove Play Cafe

There’s a whole range of regular classes and activities scheduled each month, including lots of fun things that are free with entry to the cafe such as faceprinting, crafts and cookie decorating. Our events calendar is updated monthly with regular classes such as Boogie Beats and we also host evening classes for adults such as First Aid, Fitness sessions or private events.

Each year we host two Halloween parties, a Christmas party and lots of other fun things.

We regularly host SiMBA Chat & Play sessions (SiMBA are our official charity).

If there is anything you’d us to consider that we aren’t already doing, please let us know.

A Little About Us

As parents to three children, we know how important it is to find a play cafe that caters for the whole family. Jenn’s Den opened not long after we had our youngest and we have loved visiting over the past three years. When the opportunity to buy the cafe came up, we knew this is what we had to do.

TurtleDove is based on community, family, friendship and love. We’re as committed to keeping grown-ups as happy as the kids, and so we’re currently working to ensure our menus are filled with healthy, seasonal options (with the odd treat in there, too). We’re big believers in free play, that is to give kids a toy or a pirate ship and allow them to come up with games and scenarios on their own.
