We had an absolutely wonderful time here this week. We hired two bikes and a trailer to put our 2 year old and had a wonderful ride around the site. We got very muddy and my husband was in his element. We also booked on for the pond dipping and really enjoyed that also. There were some lovely play areas for our daughter. Overall would 100% recommend and wish we lived closer however we were only on holiday for the week in the area.

We had a mixed reaction to our visit. Staff were friendly and the place is lovely. Personally I would visit again to walk the dog around the grounds.
The falconry experience we were there for was definitely more mixed. The handler was lovely and obviously was extremely passionate about the birds which was great. The birds were beautiful.
The main issue was the group size. There were 30 people and in my opinion this was far too many. Especially when some people wanted mini photo shoots every time it was their turn and everyone else had to be rushed to get through because they had taken so long.
We only lasted half of the time due entirely to the group size, and we were not the only people to leave early. Had we have known that there would be that many people in the group we would never have booked it.
I think that this would be a wonderful experience and 5 stars for sure if there were a maximum of 6 people in the group. I also think that letting people know ahead of time that there are this many people likely to be in the group then we could have adjusted our expectations.
I would have cancelled personally as being someone who suffers from social anxiety, this was just too much for me.

Just wanted to thank Alice for an absolutely amazing experience on the 19th August. I booked the falconry package for my dads 70th Birthday as a surprise treat and he was overwhelmed by the whole morning. Alice was extremely knowledgable and very welcoming making his birthday very memorable.

There is a large play are with lots to do. We walked through the woods and found a nine hole golf course the needed some tlc. While walking through the wood there were piles of sticks that looked like they had been used as shelters. There was a lot we did not see like the lakes. There are plenty of walks/cycle paths. There are lots of events on different days. So check the website to plan your visit. It would be a shame to find out you missed the pond dipping because it was on yesterday. The parking is Β£1.50 for an hour or Β£4 all day.
