We live locally & decided to visit with our one year old. Most of the staff were lovely & very friendly. The prices are very reasonable but I have to say I was extremely shocked to have to pay full price for my baby. It's almost unheard of to have to pay for under 2's at tourist attractions, let alone... More

Lovely volunteers and lovely Bara Brith cake. The Pixie train ride is great for very young children but my 8 year old and 9 year old did enjoy it! The main train ride is good, but very much shorter in time than I thought, dogs can ride in the carriages also. On site there is a great soft play area,... More

Go along and spend some money at this delightful little railway, well worth a visit, it's entirely run by volunteers and needs all the support it can get in order to expand, a short ride on the steam train on which you're able to take dogs and the lovely little pixie train, a cafe and 2 play areas for children,...

My husband and I stumbled across this railway when visiting Wales. It is a small, volunteer run railway but worth the £2.50 each we paid for a little trip up the line and back. There was also a minature golf course and a kiddie playground.

Little steam railway not huge but the kids loved it. There was a small soft play that kept both a 10 year old and a 2 year old happy. The trains were not expensive and the fairy ride was cute. Crazy golf was also a hit. Food was honest and not expensive. The burgers and bacon rolls were great. Its... More

As others have said it needs lots of work as the site regenerates under new management. Go and support it and help make it happen. My kids 5 & 2 had fun. The minature railway is far more exciting than the big train at the moment. Staff very enthusiastic and really went the extra mile to interact with my children... More
