  • Zipline and tree-top walk are class. The staff are very helpful and the setting is gorgeous for walks too. Artists and a restaurant in the main yard too. A great day out.  more »

  • Great day out. Kids will have a ball here. Such a nice walk from each activity. Definitely worth a visit. Staff are so friendly from reception to each of the activities 10/10 .
  • Great place for adults and children alike. A lot of walking so be prepared. Didnt suit me as I have a back and a hip problem but I stopped at a little cabin restaurant which is also a picnic area and I waited there and had a lovely cold drink and ice cream. Kids loved it. X
