We had a brilliant day out here. Parking charges are cheaper on a weekday than weekend but there is no entry fee and it was only £7 for the whole day, so I thought it was very good value. We were very impressed with our lunch but if you planning to eat on a Saturday I would get there early... More

This place is an absolute dream for families of all ages and the cost of entry is cheap - you only pay for parking and that is unlikely to go past £5. As you enter, you're in the forest. You drive in, park up and decide what you want to do. In front of you is the main centre -... More

Me, my partner and our 2 year old went for a lovely walk, it was a cold day but mostly dry, little one loved jumping in the puddles, it's accessible for pushchairs, mobility scooters and wheelchairs.. the little cafe looked lovely but we didn't try anything, the gruffalo sculptures were a great hit with our son. We didn't get a... More

It's not just the cafe that you will have to save money for but the parking charges are extremely high. Apart from this there is lots to do for the whole family.

This is a lovely forest park which is big enough even when really busy to be enjoyable. Lots of great walks with activities that keep the young children stimulated and eager to continue walking! Good restaurant with nice food. Train rides and a lake. We spent a good 4 hours there as there were extra Halloween painting activities which were... More

This is a beautiful Country Park and we are so lucky as we are able to walk there from our house. We have spent many a happy hour at this Park especially when our children were young. There is so much to do there and its not all for children, you can take your own bike or hire one there,... More
