Excellent if you have a toddler who loves trains. Everything is reasonably priced, entry was a little over £5 with one train ride or £2 more for unlimited rides. It's definatly worth getting unlimited. The track goes around a lake for about 5 minutes. You can also walk around the lake, with a couple of small play areas on the way round.

There is a large play area with lots to keep kids of all ages entertained and a separate toddler space. There are also model railways which cost 20p to run. The food and drinks are good value and we enjoyed what we had.

A fabulous experience for young and the not so young. Plenty to do to keep the little ones occupied and nice walks round the fishing lake. We brought our kids here when they were young and the Wadey family first started the miniature steam railway all those years ago. Now we bring our grandchildren and enjoy every minute.

Lovely little place with great play areas.
The train ride just covered one main circuit which was very nice.
We had booked for unlimited rides, but to be honest after 3 circuits we weren’t bothered about going again.
Food was very nice and “Mike” (The owner)was just oh so cheerful helping you on and off the train.
We thought we would spend a couple of hours there, but we spent just over 4.
Highly recommend it!

We always enjoy a visit here. Well looked after and has grown over the years. Used to take my children here and now we take the grandchildren. Well worth a visit

This is an ideal attraction for children, miniature train rides, indoor train layouts, a large array of outdoor play equipment, a maze, Toddler zone play area. There are lots of picnic tables dotted about and a well stocked café serving an array of sandwiches, and light meals. You can also enjoy a walk around the lake following the course of the railway. At several place you will see the train pass by, so don't forget to wave to those on the train. For the 'Thomas the tank Engine' and train enthusiast, the shop is well worth browsing.
