Really big play area for Children, the on site Cafe is decent. Nice little Gruffalo trail for the kids. Parking is reasonable. People complain about parking prices, try parking anywhere for 12.50 all day. At least here the money is put to good use.

Brilliant place for kids and adults alike, we love the Mountain Bike trails which are great for us with 9 and 12 year old girls. Lovely cafe to enjoy after doing one of the many trails. Super parking.

Although you have to pay for car parking, the more people you can get in the car, the better. You only pay for the number of hours you are present, either 1, 2, 3, 4 or all day. There is a visitor centre and restaurants...More
