Come and visit the Jeskyns Fairies and Elves

Fairy door, JeskynsA community of fairies and elves have recently discovered Jeskyns and they liked it so much that they have decided to set up their very own village! 

Look for the gate in the Sand Pit Play Area to discover wonderful tiny new residences such as Acorn Apartments, Mushroom Manor, The Old Boot Inn and Tree Top Village.

Fairies crossing, JeskynsIf you look closely you can tell where the fairies and elves have been by the sprinkings of sparkling dust they leave behind. Perhaps if you sit quietly enough and are very lucky, you may even spot one!  
 

Fairy mushroom manor, JeskynsDon't forget to bring them a little something to leave at one of their doors. They particularly love home made cards and gifts and insist that the Jeskyns Rangers regularly post photos of these gifts on the Jeskyns Facebook page to pass on their thanks, so don't forget to check it out:  www.facebook.com/jeskynscommunitywoodland
