Yearly membership is really cheap and allows you to purchase train rides for less than £2 each. So you only have to visit a few times to get your monies worth. Has a café, kids play area, nice walk around the lake. Just a nice way to pass a few hours with the kids.

This is must visit place if you are travelling with kids. Even we adults also enjoyed the train ride many times. This is fun place for all age from baby to teen. It's good to take unlimited ride ticket as surly you will ride for more than once. There is separate play area for under 5 which keeps them busy.... More

with its trains, pay areas and cafe we and the children had a lovely day out this summer. Whilst its a shame that you only get one train ride included in the entrance fee its still well worth a visit

We visited during half term with 4 and 9 year old children who are not really 'into' trains, neither are we, however, we still had an enjoyable time! We rode the train 3 or 4 times and, although it was fairly busy, never had to que for more than a few minutes. The walk round the lake, playgrounds and maze... More

We have visited with a 3,6,9 year old. Paid quite a lot to get in but not much here really. There is a play area which is nothing special and a little worn and dated. We got 1 train ride, a little maze walk and small walk around a lake. The problem is has very limited sheltered seating so it's... More

It was a great few hours out for us, specially enjoyed by our 2.5 year old grandson. He had two rides on the train with his grandad in between rain showers, but thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We had a snack sat under the shelter as it was raining very hard. The children's meal was quite substantial, my husband enjoyed a... More
