Beware of the car park, it now operates an ANPR system, and as we've long thrown out ticket away we are now liable for a £60 fine, absolute joke.

I attended here one day to meet up with some friends, we both had paid for parking and a few weeks later we then received parking charge notices in the posh demanding we both pay them. The appeal didn’t work as they stated we are still liable for the pcn and if we don’t pay this will be effected onto my credit file. The fine has now gone up to £184 this parking situation is ridiculous

What a beautiful park. My grandson is not quite 2 but he had fun in the play park, watching the ducks and going on the bouncy castle. It was a shame there was a cost for the infant play area but he was happy in the other areas. We didn't have time to explore the rest of the park. Will definitely go back.

Great playing park. Some parts not open. That is life! Parking price for a full day was good.

Great choices of eating and things to do.

The train was great.

Please be aware of the car park scam !!!!
Paid at the car park for a full day, had a lovely day day and a few weeks later got a fine for £60.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who got this neither will I be the last.

My husband left the car park to fill up petrol whilst the children and I played in the park he re entered to pick us up but he did not leave the vehicle. Obviously we payed for the whole day so we didn’t pay again especially when he was just picking us up but a few weeks later we received a parking charge notice of £60.
If we appeal and we are unsuccessful then we have to pay £100.
What a scam!!!

My wife went and used the car park pay by phone facility. The phone system said everything had gone through ok, but she was worried because she hadn't been asked her registration number. She called me at home and asked me to check, so I called the parking company support line who confirmed that the car was *not* registered as having been paid for - narrow escape of a £100 penalty.

On other occasions I have been with my wife when we have gone, and I have used the app to pay. Even when I select paying for all-day parking, when it gets to the confirmation page it often shows only 1 hour parking selected, and nothing I do will let me change to whole day parking other than restarting the app and trying again. Sometimes it takes three or four attempts to get it to give me the whole day parking I have selected - the company seems to be hoping I won't notice that the confirmation isn't for what I selected.

The park itself is lovely. Lots of green space, lake to feed the ducks , nice (if over priced) coffee shop, splash park and the little train is lovely as well as the play park.
My 3 star review is for the car parking scam they very clearly have going on. I got there and it was freezing, I had an 8 week old with me and I spent far too long on the phone going through the automated service, putting in my card details, registration details and paying the £3 to park all day. It said my payment had gone through and we had a nice, if not cold few hours. 4 weeks later I get a letter with £100 fine for not paying for the car park. I check my bank and no payment has come out. I appealed the fine after showing proof of me making the call and they said ‘no one else had an issue before you entered the car park nor after you left the car park. You deliberately made no effort to pay.’ I was beyond furious as I made more than an effort to pay. Why would I think I hadn’t paid when it said I had? If I appealed again and they refused, it went up to £200!! So I very begrudgingly paid it but will never go back there again. I know I’m not the first nor the last. This needs rectifying ASAP!

What a great place to visit-we travelled 50 miles to come after seeing it online and was well worth the drive. Some negative reviews on here which I can’t understand at all. Parking was £3 for the whole day which we paid at machine and everything here including food and drinks at cafe very reasonably price with the lido/splash-park being free for the children to play in.
Would highly recommend for any family-a very enjoyable inexpensive day out that small children will love

Beware of getting a fine for parking in the carpark. Arrived and sorted out payment for parking. Said it had all gone through. Had a lovely day at park which is really nice. About a month later received a parking fine for £60. Checked my bank statement to find payment hadn't been taken. Total rip off.
