There's always something to do here, whatever the time of year. We loved the miniature train, the ducks on the lake, and the hot chocolate in the cafe, as well as watching the older children on the zipwire.

I took the family to Moors Valley for some family time and some fun. We took our bikes and we spent 4 hours just turning this way and that around the beautiful park and woodlands. We did take a picnic but the food on site is reasonable but when the weather is that good a picnic is the way ahead.... More

All the praise that others have heaped on this facility is justified. Our visit with an 8 year old grandchild was a joy even if it was very busy. BTW the coffee from the take out was excellent!

Nice walk through the forest with intervals for playing on the wooden structures which where really good. Never got to go to the... More

Visited here on Boxing Day with our two grandchildren for the quiz, they had great fun climbing and exploring, which was far more fun than answering the quiz questions as we walked the trail.A great place for children to let off steam, to put to good use their exploration skills, to just be a child, and even for adults to...

There is so much to do at Moors Valley. Always a fantastic day out. The car park is pricey, but if you consider this cost divided by the number of people, it is actually good value for a place with so much to do. My children enjoy the activity trail and the hot chocolate served in the restaurant!

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
