We love Hollycombe, we go every year as often as we can, have evan been with a 6 day old baby in tow, the staff are fantastic, so kind and helpful, the food is good quality and reasonable priced, the fun fair section is just magical! Hollycombe is the perfect family day out and brilliant value for money

A nostalgic experience to the time when steam was king. A lovely collection of machinery and equipment from days gone by and when times were more serene and less complicated. The enthusiasts who maintain and seek to fund Hollycombe deserve our support.

This is a great day out and fascinating for all ages. The gardens towards the back of the site are beautiful and these are ideal for a quiet walk even if you don't want to visit the steam collection. The miniature and regular steam train(s) are appealing to adults and children alike. The steam powered fair rides are a great... More

if you want something different to a spa day or disco mania then grab a picnic and head to Hollycombe. Always been a favorite place of mine so really was the perfect solution for a hen day.

I have been going to Hollycombe since I was a very small child, and it remains one of my favourite places. For those who love all things steam, it offers everything you could possibly want with steam powered fairground rides, narrow gauge and miniature railways, traction engines and steam powered farm equipment. The fairground offers clean, old-fashioned, fun for young... More

Excellent evening , some wonderful machinery and fairground rides. Given it is run by volunteers it is friendly and personable but a tad quirky. Rides are varied , some are exceptional others less interesting . Although expensive given the limited Angel of rides, tickets are valid for a year which allows for repeat visits. Great when shared experience with friends

Good collection of steamy goods. All fairly relaxed, very enjoyable. Friendly people. Only negative would be just how badly worn everything is looking - it's obviously been a busy summer, but there is that "about to fall apart" feeling with a few of the rides!

Great place, lovely staff. My young kids enjoyed the simple steam rides and also the hall of mirrors. The big train ride is great as is the garden train ride. Plenty of places to picnic. Free entry for a year. Brill

First things to say is my kids love visiting Hollycombe and always ask to go back but having just visited over the August bank holidays it was noticeable that a few things we had done before weren't running. I appreciate that the place is run by volunteers and must cost a lot of money but also remember this is the... More
