We came here as part of a birthday treat for my boyfriend. It was easy enough to find and offered some amazing unique experiences. On arrival we parked with ease and went through the entrance where there was a lovely cafe with free wifi which is great after camping out with no signal for several days. We were then left... More

My partner and I don't have kids but there never stops us from doing fun things. Forbidden Corner allows you to run away with your imagination. I could imagine some parts of this enchanted place aren't for every young child but overall this place has something for everyone in the family from young to old - I really felt as... More

Absolutely fantastic visit to the Forbidden corner to see Santa. My little boy was absolutely made up with it. He enjoyed running round outside and was especially pleased with all the water features. We ate in the restaurant which was fabulous value for money. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We will certainly be back in the summer!

We can easily spend the full day in here and still find new areas not yet seen despite the place not being massive be sure you book online to get entry only downside is the drive to get there takes a long time

An absolutely brilliant day out, was just my partner and I but I imagine it would be fantastic in bigger groups too. You could definitely kill a whole day here and not get bored. Some of the coins are quite hard to find (I think we were missing three when we decided to call it a day), but with a... More

This is a great place for families and also adults who are young at heart. The setting is beautiful with the most amazing view. Lots of twists and turns, little tunnels and also water to... More
