A great couple of hours searching for the 'lost toys' in the Maize Maze. So well designed, had us all entertained. All the staff were really friendly. Will definitely be visiting again.

Fantastic maze, lovely flower garden and a great toy shop with loads of outdoor play equipment and climbing frames. The stuff in the toy shop is really interesting and varied. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a fabulous toy shop, good quality toys in a deceptively large series of showrooms. Lots of outdoor kit too and various climbing frames on display outside, although too wet to study on our visit, but you are free to trial. Really was an...More
