Love Rathwood the food is fabulous in the restaurant catering for breakfast lunch and dinner. Great garden centre for plants flowers and shrubs. Rathwood also has great walk ways around the lake to see deer goats and other animals. Fantastic santa experience also.

Hi The teddy bear picnic is definitely for more younger children I have did both. But Jack Frost and the Elves make it much more interesting for the older kids. My son loved Jack Frost and his trick acting. My 10 year still believes and maybe that’s why he likes it. Hope this helps Deirdre

Just booked the Santa train for this year 😀 my kids are 8 , 12 and 14 ... didn't want to leave anyone out so we're all going .. but reading some of the reviews maybe I'm better off making other arrangements for the older two ?? Is it really just for very young kids ? Any advise welcome .. also what are the gifts Santa gives to kids like ?
