On Sunday 16th September Old Down Park held a classic car show. My wife and I attended with our MG as we were delighted to see that there were so many old cars on display. Everything from luxury Bentley and Rolls Royce to really nice...More

The boating pool and jumping pillow were a big hit. More animal interactions than previously which was good for the hols. Would come back.

Quite expensive entrance fee to do not much. It was small and disappointing, think we managed an hour here but only because we had a picnic. Not as many animals as it makes out on the website.

I took my son here but we were only entertained for an hour or so, there is lots to do but all outdoors so no sheltered play areas for rainy days.

Really disappointed in this place. It was very run down and unloved. Poorly sign posted around the park. Animal corner was advertising a farm yard frenzy at certain times to let and feed animals but it never happened again very disappointing. The Manor house looked...More

Yes! It is very dog friendly, the waitresses offer water to dogs in the cafe. They just need to be kept on a lead.
