Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have been before and enjoyed it but the real big gripe I have is the carpark payment, I mean every carpark pretty much has contactless or card however this place only has coins accepted…nobody has change anymore it’s a rarity and I know they say no network blah blah but is a poor excuse, the cafe probably has wifi for their card machine.
Because of this we decided to go to Eye itself for a walk around and fornham lost out on our cake etc orders and parking such a shame as it is a lovely place let down by a easily achievable solution.

A lovely spot to go walking. When you visit woodlands for the first time to go walking, good trail signposting is a big help - Thornham does this very well. The trails are well kept and a map is available from the visitor centre. Whats not to like.

The grounds are great - good access and lots to see. Good spots to picnic if that is your thing. However suggest giving the tearoom a miss. Such a shame a captive market but poorly run/managed, a basic menu is fine but should be delivered with reasonable speed.
When I visited we decided to just have coffee as food ( whatever was ordered) would take an hour! Would have been quicker to go to the local pub
This when not exactly heaving with guests - lots of empty tables
Clearly something must be done if they expect to provide a reasonable service.

Perhaps, like many businesses, they are struggling with staff, if so maybe restricting the menu would help - whatever I think something must be done if they are to make the most of the summer season.

The owner of the estate has 2 black German shepherd dogs who run freely throughout the walks despite signs everywhere saying dogs must be on leads. And last week they attacked my dog ( another German shepherd ) for no reason. The staff were great and helped defend me and my dog but this was an awful experience for any dog owner to go through. I dread to think what could happen to others. I will never be coming back here

Lovely space to enjoy the the coutryside, walking the dog. Cafe on site offers great refreshments, good parking. Well worth a trip for an hour or two.

Really lovely area, kids loved it, spent 6 hours there, 3 of which in the park, struggled to get them to leave, even the adults enjoyed it, has a very fun wonky roundabout that the adults spent most the time on, and a great mom assault course. Plenty areas for picnics, and loads of great things to discover on the walks, truly magical place. Will definitely visit again, perfect for a day out, and costs nothing but a cheap parking ticket.

Six middle aged friends spent an enjoyable few hours walking around the walks. We were surprised that the café wasn’t open as there were a lot of people around due to the fact that it was a really lovely day. We knew that there was a café by the car park and had intended to have some tea and cake before we began walking, but this was not to be. The area is so beautiful and there are quite a few wood carvings and the like to make the walk even more enjoyable. Also hidden around the walks are a series of geocaches, so something else to do whilst walking around. One thing that annoyed us quite a lot was that there was a free-standing sign for Roscoes Deli and Farm Shop that was pointing away from the route we were taking, but we decided to follow the instructions on the sign in the hope of at last getting that cup of tea we were yearning for, but after a long walk in the opposite direction and more signs we found the deli which was also closed. Why can’t they take in the signs when they are not open? Just sheer laziness as far as we were concerned!

Pleasant walks. Quite a few items to amuse young children. Play park. Huge slices of cake at the café. Some walks are surfaced which is handy when it's wet. Parking £2 Monday to Friday, £3 Saturday and Sunday.

A nice walk through maintained countryside, with some art and crafts style shops near the entrance. There is a £2 charge for parking.

Our child loved the park here and there was plenty to keep him entertained for well over an hour. T

he café was running from a table outside as a covid precaution, which was slow as it seemed there was just one young member of staff working. But when the food and drink arrived it was lovely, and being in the middle of a traditional English estate the setting was beautiful.

Would recommend.
