Robin Hill open for the first time this Christmas

If you're looking for a way to enjoy some fresh air after being cooped up inside scoffing food and watching TV this coming Christmas Day and Boxing Day, why not head over to Robin Hill on the Isle of Wight

The Robin Hill Adventure Park and Gardens near Newport is opening its door for the first time ever this festive period, between December 27th and 30th. 

From midday to 6pm, the park will be welcoming parents keen to burn off those roast dinners and kids with plenty of pent up energy and excitement, and possibly some new clothes to parade around in. 

Despite the chill, those who've wrapped up warm will be able to enjoy the park's Colossus Swinging Galleon and Cows Express train ride, as well as the majority of the play areas. 

Once darkness has fallen, the woodland area will be lit up with spectacular lighting, accompanied by the sound of festive music. If you've still got an appetite, toasted marshmallows will be served at the Woodland Ponds and there will be warming hot chocolate and a mince pies on offer at the Squirrels Cafe.

If you've got four-legged friends in tow, dogs are welcome as long as they're kept on their leads and any kids with new footballs and rugby balls can play with them at the lower playing fields.

The best bit is that Christmas week tickets to Robin Hill are valid for all four days, so you can keep the kids entertained for the whole of the holidays without breaking the bank. 

Please be aware that some areas of the park will be closed, so if you want to experience all the rides and the falconry displays that Robin Hill normally offers, you'll need to come back in 2014 once the weather has warmed up a bit. The 2014 calendar has yet to be announced, so check the official website for details. Standard off peak tickets cost £12.50 each. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801662564-ADNFCR
