excellent walk

good trek to excite and exhaust kids of all ages with a cafe at the end. Take their mobile phones and I pads off them and open their eyes to nature.

We took 3 children here who were initially reluctant knowing we were 'going on a walk', however once inside the excitement of finding the next item kept them entertained and interested. Not suitable for pushchairs, makes an interesting walk in a beautiful location.

The moment you start walking from the entrance /shop / cafe (fab food by the way) you know you're in for. Magical walk! We have visited several times, and this year arranged for an 8 year olds birthday party there. The party was amazing, taught Archery by Barry, a picnic and free access to the grounds, the kids loved it.... More

As you get to the hotel, Santa sits proudly on the roof... More
