Ashington Lesiure Centre, Lintonville Terrace, NE63 9JY
We visited Active Northumberland’s; Ashington Leisure centre for their softplay facilities, when visiting family who live nearby.
The parking is free, and they also have disabled parking and places to store your bikes if you cycled in, which would be great in the summer.
On Arrival, we checked in with the receptionist as we had pre-booked online, which is recommended during busier times such as school holidays and weekends. However, you can also walk-in too.
You can also book via their app – Active Northumberland, this will let you know how many spaces are available also.

The ground floor is the baby and toddler area. However, I would of said more based for toddlers.
They have a mirror, soft blocks, soft animals to rock on and puzzles around the walls.
There is a storey with a zebra print slide and also a rocking climbing section.
On the top storey, there is a football pitch, which I thought was canny cool for the kids.
There is a cafe on-site, and a seating area within the soft-play.
When ordering food it is contactless.
