About US

Opening Hours

We are open Monday to Friday, 07:30 to 18:00 for 50 weeks of the year.

Minnie’s Room operates throughout the whole fifty weeks of the year, with six weeks of holiday available (pro rata, running from September to August). All other areas run term time with the option of holiday cover.


We are located within the grounds of Green Lane Church Of England Controlled Primary School at Barnard Castle. Although we are a separate company, we work very closely with the school to ensure the smooth transition into school for the children. Link to website here
