Large ranch with everything! Fabulous playground and horses although not for riding you can let them. Wonderful adventure walks search for the buffalo or the three Billy goats gruff. High wire for older children is well supervised. But make sure you book in school holidays....More

Even though it was an overcast and cool day, with occasional drizzle, our 2 young grand-children thoroughly enjoyed our time there. A great range of activities and things to see along the Gruffalo Trail, and some sand pits to explore too. Cafe was reasonable.
