The Potters Barn is set in the heart of the UK in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, situated next to the Trent and Mersey canal and within easy reach of junction 17 on the M6 motorway. They offer a choice of activities with skills suitable for all age groups and they can accommodate individuals, schools and other large parties.

"Our year 5 and 6 pupils really enjoyed their afternoon of clay modelling and they were really pleased with the finished products. My colleagues and I were also pleased with the two afternoons that were completed. They were really well organised and paced excellently to match the capabilities of the children and I also thought they represented great value for money as the children kept
everything they made to take home."
Mrs L Hemming, Class teacher,
Haslington Primary School
