Visit the Jeskyns Fairy and Elf Village

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. 

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:

  • Suitable for all ages.
  • No charge.
  • You'll find the village in the Sand Pit Play Area just 500m from cafe. 
  • Sorry, dogs not allowed, but there is a comfy bench outside the play area where dog owners can rest whilst children explore.
