The committee room also benefits from wi-fi and network sockets, for those bringing their own laptops to the Club. (However, you will need to bring your own network cable for connection).
Along the corridor from the committee room, on the first floor up from the west lobby, the reading room provides an alternative to the drawing room, conservatory and long gallery, for quiet contemplation.

A cash machine can be found in the gym corridor, which connects the horseshoe car park and the Four In Hand yard.
Family Room Log Cabin
The family room is now situated within the log cabin. On days when the British weather does its worst, everyone in the playground can retreat inside the log cabin, with its selection of soft play toys and a comfortable seating area for parents.
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult and the family room is usually open from 9am till dusk.
Located alongside Chestnut Avenue, the children’s playground is a sure-fire solution for entertaining all children, and plenty of adults, providing hours of exercise and fun.
The playground is dedicated to encouraging fun through a variety of physical challenges, testing:
With the children fully occupied, we hope it will also be the perfect place for parents and grandparents to relax, knowing that their children are safe and happy.
Over the years, particular features within the original playground have earned members’ affection and those that are still safe have been retained. The challenges provided by those that have been removed, are reflected in the stunning new designs that also respect the natural feel of the old playground.
The playground is split into different zones according to age and ability. However, it should be stressed that none of the areas are mutually exclusive, except where reasons of safety dictate.
Situated at the far end of the playground, near the crèche facility, the Toddler Zone is contained by a boundary fence, reassuring parents the little ones are safe within this zone, if that is their wish.
The highlights of this space include:
- Log train, adjacent to
- Little painted house, now a signal box
- Pergola house
- Sand pit, with mini-excavators
- Springy jeep
- Wobbly sheep
Other small items have been retained and nearby benches with picnic tables allow parents to relax and enjoy their lunch.
Water Play Area
A cleverly designed zone with a variety of interactive hand pumps and spouts, allowing children to play with water without the risks associated with standing water, such as infections. The existing metal fence around the area has been retained, so that access and getting wet is supervised!
Adventure Play Zone
The most innovative and daring part of the design, the Adventure Play Zone challenges children to climb from one side of the playground to the other, across a rope tunnel, without their feet touching the ground. At any point, the option of re-entering the ‘climbing forest’ remains. The capacity of the ‘forest’ to occupy many children at once, is also a major part of its appeal.
Other highlights include:
- Cable way ‘zip wire’
- Climbing walls
- Nest swing
- Spider net
- Tree houses
All these features contribute to making this new area one of the most complete climbing forests in the UK.
The playground has been built to conform to the highest safety standards. The equipment will be regularly checked for damage or faults; however parental supervision will be required at all times. For the safety and enjoyment of all, please adhere to the playground’s rules and regulations.
Easter 2010 saw the opening of a new catering outlet in the children’s playground, serving hot and cold drinks, and cold snacks.
Adults can keep warm in the winter months with hot coffees, teas and infusions or kick back with a chilled glass of wine or a beer in the summer. For the children, a selection of soft drinks, confectionery and ice creams should keep energy levels buzzing!
Housed in the playhut at the end of Chestnut Avenue, the crèche’s opening hours vary on a daily basis, so you are best advised to check with the fitness centre reception for up to date details.
Catering for children aged 12 weeks to five years and for a period of up to two hours in any one day, your child is guaranteed a fun-packed time. There are plenty of toys to keep all ages amused and occupied, and activities such as soft play, creative arts and dressing up.
Criminal Records Bureau
Fun, safety and care are the golden rules and, as with all the staff supervising or working with children at the Club, the team of trained child minders are CRB checked.
