Myself and my husband went during the week. It was still fairly busy. As we didnt want to see Santa, we didn;t need to queue to do anything. We went through the grotto, it was magical! Then fed donkeys, llamas, ghost and the main attraction - the reindeer! It was a fun, abolsutely amazing experience. We got a freee mince... More

We visited on Sunday, guessed it would be busy so arrived just before opening time and already quite a queue. We took our grandson age 6 and grandaughter age 3, after we bought our tickets we had a 30 minute wait to see Father Christmas, he was not in the usual grotto but set in a room just like a... More

This place has such great possibilities;- reindeer, other animals, play areas and super Santas. BUT..... it's just executed so badly. It really needs someone to get in there and organise them with some Christmas magic!! Parking was fine - plenty of parking assistants and the ground wasn't too boggy. Wandered up to the payment booths and the girl there was... More

I drove for over one hour and did expect some queuing but was hopeful it wouldn't be long or would be worth the wait! Unfortunately on arrival I was told the que was 2 hours long!!! I didn't yet realise the visit would last 5 mins if that!!! If I'd realised I wouldn't have made the journey. It should be... More

This was the second time we have visited. The first time two years ago was an acceptable visit but sadly today was a very different experience. We felt that it was tacky untidy and quite poor!! Parking was much improved! Easy access and help to park ! During a busy time here might be a bit of a walk to... More

Another fabulous visit to the Reindeer centre. So much to do and see. Plenty of reindeer to see, as well as a selection of other animals. Toys to play with, and, not forgetting the visit to the big man himself!! Only let down was when our daughter looked at the photo of her with Santa and then spotted the computer... More

What a lovely afternoon we've had. Infact this is probably the best visit so far out of all the years we've been coming. I checked first with staff re their busy times due to 2 children who are physically disabled/health issues. So we made the decision to drive out today and it was def the best thing we did. Straight... More

This is the second year in a row I've brought my class here for their Christmas outing (it's cheapest in November here). Yet again, they loved it. The lights in the walk through grotto really enchanted my students and Santa as great with them. We didn't have time to visit the other animals, but did enjoy seeing the lady reindeers.... More

My family and I visited last weekend for the Christmas Grotto. There was so much for the children to including an all pit, bouncy castle, toys and feeding the animals. Unfortunately as it was so busy it took 45 mins to queue for a cup of tea and an the queue for Santa was an hour long. My family have... More
