Testimonials

Zara - Ruskington

I always find it really difficult to find somewhere to entertain a preschooler and a baby but at Holly Tree there is something for both of them. My baby has plenty to do and loves the Jumperoo whilst my eldest spends most of her time on the "amazing bumpy slide" (Myia, Age 3). There's also a lovely selection of cakes and coffee for mums!
