If you go down to the woods today ……

Funky Forest is a great place to go if you’ve got young children, like a good cup of coffee and something fresh and yummy to eat. Nestled amongst the trees opposite Diana Park it offers a bright, clean and funky venue for a quick break or catch up and have a good chat with your friends. It’s safe, its friendly and it’s a great concept that certainly seems to be appreciated and used by many parents and grandparents on the Costa del Sol.

Finding a good place to meet that your kids enjoy, so you can enjoy is a blessing. Funky Forest has it all; toys to play with, an outside area to explore, rabbits and animals to hold and pet plus a healthy menu of freshly cooked food, cakes and biscuits. It has all the facilities you would expect from a place that caters for children but with much more, it’s warm in the winter, cool in the summer and has a great buzz about it whenever you drop by.

This little haven has been lovingly nurtured and developed over the past year by its owners Robin and Laura to become one of the best venues on the coast that really caters for both children and parents alike but without the plastic. If you have young children and are stuck for somewhere to go I would certainly recommend it, whether it’s just popping down the road for a short visit or if you’re coming from further a field and make an afternoon of it, it’s well worth it.

With the kids safe and happy you can relax and enjoy, have a real conversation with your friends or simply watch your children explore all the great things Funky Forest has to offer. Check out the blackboard on the wall near the entrance, it has details of the variety of workshops they have running, from after school and holiday activities workshops and classes for kids to adults salsa and yoga classes there is always something going on.

What I really like about the place is the presence of Robin and Laura. Funky Forest is their creation and an expression of their philosophy. It actively embraces and encourages multicultural learning, appreciation and expression. Having visited the place quite a few times over this past year their passion, energy and dedication is evident. It would appear that they always on the lookout for things that enhance the experience of Funky Forest for the children and in doing so provide quality time for all who go there.

If you have got young children it should be on your list of places to visit for 2013. You never know having visited once your child might enrol on one of the cookery workshops and might be baking you biscuits for your birthday! Enjoy.
