Nene Outdoors logoSituated in the heart of Ferry Meadows, the Discovery Den is our dedicated space for children's activities. With brightly coloured murals on the walls and child friendly furniture, it's a great space for children's parties or activities which might involve a bit of mess! 

Fully equipped with audiovisual equipment and a small kitchen area, it is also ideal for training sessions and craft workshops.

The Discovery Den is located next to the main car park alongside the Visitor Centre complex, in an attractive setting overlooking Overton Lake, and has easy access to the Conservation Garden and Ferry Meadows Café.
