Most of the fun happens outdoors, however, in our huge grass play areas. Every guest enjoys at least two playtimes a day. Exercise can either be alone or with other compatible friends of the same age, size, activity level and play style. All playtimes are supervised by our personal trainers to encourage positive social interaction.

Playtimes last from 20 minutes to one hour depending on the make-up of each group. Guests can either play ball, start a game of chase or mooch around the paddock sniffing.

Our exercise paddocks overlook our stock paddocks so guests can see horses, sheep, goats and pigs, making it visibly stimulating as well.


Relaxation is an important part of a guests holiday at Shadow Estate, so each guest returns to their room for a snooze between activities.

We have a range of cozy beds for our guests to choose, from baskets and beanbags to raised beds with head and foot boards. You are more than welcome to bring guest's bed from home.
