  • Excellent day out, and reasonably priced. Visited today and our kids were unexpectedly treated to a clay making workshop. Not only was this free, but it was really well run, the kids enjoyed it and the Teacher was excellent! The grounds are amazing, kids enjoyed the park. Well recommended!!!!
  • Amazing when sunny. Brought the whole family here and just walked round the grounds. Brilliant for the kids to run around. Also the Go Ape play area is great for older children. Didn't want to let my 2 year old run about. Will come again.
