THE BIG RED BARN
On Sunlawns farm outside Irene in Pretoria, The Big Red Barn is a beautiful space with lots to do.
Outdoors, there’s fun to be had in the treetops with Acrobranch, and 40km of scenic mountain-bike, trail-running and hiking trails winding through the tranquil gum-tree forest.
Relax at the Barn Restaurant while the children explore the Pirate Ship kiddies’ play area, where there’s more fun to be had than just playing pretend. There are trampolines in the jump park, electric go-karts and inflatable bubble balls with Nino Adventures that gobble up excess energy.
And for artists — children and adults alike — there’s ceramic painting at the Clay Cafe. Settle in, order food, select your piece and get painting. When you’re done, leave your work of art to be glazed, then collect it after about two weeks.
The Barn Restaurant is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 8am to 5pm, the Clay Cafe from 9am to 5pm daily except Tuesdays, Acrobranch seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, Nino Adventures bumper balls and go-karts Tuesdays to Sundays from 8.30am to 5pm, and trails are open seven days a week from 7am to 5pm.
