This is a hidden gem. Stunning setting and very family orientated. Not at all commercialised which makes a change. The staff couldn't do more to help- my daughter dropped her hat off a train and they retrieved it for her. Lots to do- boating, crazy...More

I'm not sure about a double pram but there were single buggies being lifted into the main train. There was a container carriage to take the pushchairs/prams.

I think your daughter might get bored, there's not much to see for a girl that age, my 3 y old son is train mad, if he wasn't into trains we wouldn't even take him there.
