Join Cheshire Outdoors for everyday fun. From crazy golf to archery and air rifles to low ropes, Cheshire Outdoors offer fun for all ages. No need to book, just turn up. Prizes vary. Check their website for more details. Visit

The Miniature Railway is hidden just behind the top car park in Sandiway Wood and is open each Sunday from 12pm til 4pm (free to ride but any donations will be greatly appreciated to help with the upkeep of the line and train), please see their website at

(Please note, the Miniature Railway is not a business on site at Blakemere. This is a group of enthusiasts who have purchased a portion of Sandiway Wood and therefore we have no control as to when this is open and when it will run from day to day. They have said that they will endeavour to be here each Sunday but it would be best if you contact them direct via their website if you are travelling from afar).

Of course to entertain the children all year round, we also have lots of daily activities including paint-a-pot, candle dipping or throwing a pot on the potter’s wheel at Cheshire Craft Workshop and next door there is Barnaby’s play barn for kids of all ages which also has a soft play area for the tiny tots. Visit or for more details.


Our car boot sales are held on the front events field. They run from March until October and are held on the last Sunday of each of these months. No need to book, £5 per car or van. Field opens 7.30am for sellers only to set up. No access to field before a member of staff arrives. If the weather is bad we will cancel the car boot the night before so please follow us on Facebook to find out if it is going ahead.
