The park will keep youngsters up to about 9 years old for about 2-3 hours. There is a small steam train with about a 10 minute ride and lots of activities to keep them occupied. The car park and site can be a little muddy...More

Many thanks for your review, we are an outdoor attraction so after a few days of rain the site can get muddy. Tesco vouchers and a picnic is a great idea for a lovely, magical, cheap and cheerful day out!

Thank you so much for your comments. We have been overwhelmed with the amount of visitors to the park this season and we couldn't agree more with you regarding the lack of toilet facilities. It is something we will definitely be addressing before next season.

We took our 8 year old here and even though we were assured at the reception it was a suitable place for an eight year old it most definitely is not. This place would seem to suit toddlers to six year olds only. This place...More

Haven't been for years and they have expanded the site considerably (content wise)in that time. I would say that the park is apt for children up to 10. Older children may find the content a little too kiddish and possibly boring. Plenty to do, model...More

Caters for all, everything from trains, trampolines and trees to princesses and ponys. Doesn't feel theme-parky which is what we were after. Den building was great. Cafe staff excellent but worth taking a picnic.
