Try the tropical butterfly house at North Anston. It's 10 mins from junction 31 M1. I've been there loads with my 7 year old and we love it. There's all sorts of animals inside and out. The house it's self is fantastic. there's a play ground and cafe. If it's a nice day they have birds of pray displays on the lawn. Enjoy. http://www.butterflyhouse.co.uk/

Yes ski village, not as far as you think. Has bowling, food/bar, quad bikes (£3 short ride) adventure mountain which is big wooden playarea. Great place for kids of all ages. Reasonable prices.

The number to book bowling is 2760044. Sometimes we just go and wait, there is giant connect four and pool table so nice place to hang out if booking a time is a problem.

I don't work there before someone asks!!!but have a leaflet here so thought i'd give you their details, http://www.sheffieldskivillage.co.uk.

Have a great day whatever you decide to do.

Wentworth garden centre in Barnsley is a nice little place. Apart from the garden centre, theres little shops, pet shop, playground, a maze, and the beautiful garden to walk around. They have recently opened a farm there, where you can feed the animals. There is a small fee to get into the farm, I think it's about 3 or 4 pounds.

(The butchers shop there sells the most gorgeous pork pies!!)

Wentworth Garden Centre is in Rotherham. Depending on which way you come from sheffield you can either go through Thorpe Hesley to Wentworth or Hoyland Common and Harley.

Hi ksheff2,

 

It's OK. Just didn't want OP to go the wrong way. It's well worth a visit and both the pubs in the village do food.
