Context

Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home that has stayed within the same family for centuries. Built around the turn of the 16th Century, 15 generations have filled the hallowed Hall near Hull. It was the author of ‘England’s Thousand Best Houses’, Simon Jenkins, that hailed Burton Agnes as ‘the perfect English house’, placing it alongside the likes of Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House in an illustrious list of treasured estates.

Work undertaken

eibe Play worked with owners Simon and Olivia Cunliffe-Lister and Estate Manager, Anna Tindull on the creation of a bespoke play area.

eibe had to come up with a detailed creative plan to fit the specified equipment into the designated space and it took all of Design Director, David Hibberd’s ingenuity to conceive the perfect playspace.

Talks began in earnest throughout 2017, with the £128,000 scheme finally coming to fruition in the Spring of 2019.

Set amid stunning scenery, the new playground features eibe's Wise Old Tree, an Ivo Explorer Island, a Ranjo toddlers' play house, and a series of swings, slides, spring rockers and a dynamic cableway.

Comment

David said that including a range of products that would cater for toddlers through to teens was a design imperative.

“Burton Agnes attracts multigeneration families, so it was essential that we supplied the right mix of products. The end result offers a predominantly robinia wooden playspace that children of all ages will enjoy for many years. It contains fun climbing and exploring equipment, as well as units encouraging motion, movement and motor skills.”
