Living near to this attraction we never get tired of visiting. A family can spend a lovely day here where all ages can enjoy the many activities from walks to water fun to climbing,sliding and balancing! Picnic areas and cafes plus great camping for a longer stay.

The breakfast was a crime against humanity, absolutely vile. We paid £140 for a twin room for the weekend and wifi wasn't even included, I've been to third world countries with free wifi even when you haven't paid for a room. The green emergency light was incredibly bright and everything about the room was the cheapest tat they could get... More

With boys 12 & 10 they loved this place. The only slight let down was the indoor climbing wall. It's not cheap but it got them out doing things and they loved it!

Took the kids to the fireworks last night which were very very good - however they had turned the place into a theme park, thumping music and inflatable stuff - horrid. It wasn't enough to just to have a bonfire and fireworks and a cup of soup! We love the Park and go there regularly, this was disappointing.

Visited the county park as a day visitor with family and kids. Great location and very busy as it was summer. numerous activities on and especially loved the "tree top trail" kids enjoyed playing in the various areas. Not every activity is included so be mindful you may have to pay for a number of activities, cash and cards accepted.... More

My wife and I travelled 62 miles today with our excited young boys (5 and 7) to play at River Dart Country Park. We arrived to find that a VW festival was on and that we would have to pay £6 each (£24 total) to enter instead of the usual £7 car park charge. There was no mention of this... More

Lots of woodland walks, climbing frames, a wooden fort l, pirate ship, play areas. In looking forwards to booking again for next year!... More
