Nice day out

Its a nice day out with a good variety of farm animals. The play space is also good. My only concern is the space for some of the animals to graze does not seem fair.

We live close by so made sense to take out an annual subscription so we can visit as many times as we like. The children love the trampolines, the various animals and the large field with all the climbing, swinging and jumping frames. Plenty of good food in the café plus the lovely Marshfield ice cream - Oh! and don't... More

Have driven by Old Down a few times, and eventually went in for the afternoon to see what it was all about. What a great surprise. You have to buy your park tickets in the shop and go through into a large veggie area and then a playground for young kids, with trampolines, sandpits, and toys, plus plenty of benches... More

This is my favourite place to come with children, it spans over a wide area and there's lots of different things to do. From stroking ponies and goats, to bouncy castles and assault courses. It is quite expensive and difficult to get to without a car.

Never been before so took grandchildren cost £24 for a family ticket if the weather is good you would get your moneys worth, but it is showing signs of needing some maintenance. That said the café is very good and value for money but why do you have to pay again for the slide and bouncy castle in the main... More

Convenient for team members around the country to get to (7 minutes from the M4 / M5). Old Down Manor is set in a fantastic country house location with beautiful grounds. Drinking coffee on the front lawn and overlooking the Severn Estuary - someone always makes the comment "this better than meeting at a hotel". The Manor House is modern... More
