What a great place to go for a walk to unwind, there are well signed walks for all abilities, there is also mountain bike trails and a great cafe to end your walk with a drink and cake. Lots of wild life to see.

Really nice place to go for a family day out. The cafe here is lovely too although a little expensive. Car parking is also £6 for over 2 hours, so if you're going make sure you go for a full day!

We have been to birthday parties on the field and cycling, concerts. There is no where near that you can do so much, in the past I have taken scouts to do the activities and been with school to do the other activities.

We were really excited to take my 3 year old niece on the Gruffalo Trail. We spent 40 minutes queuing in the cafe for a map and then set off. (Suelt the maps could be collected from elsewhere, such as the empty visiors information building?)....More

Living in rather flat Lincolnshire it’s well worth the drive for a few hours of off roading I’m not super experienced but I did the hard trail 14km in 1’20. And 40£ for a years parking pass is a great deal. Cafe gets busy but...More

Hi sorry they is the Gruffalo sculpture but the rest have been taken away. You can follow the Gruffalo orienteering trail. The leaflet is £1.50 from the Cafe.

There are cabins, I don't know why one of the answers says there are no cabins. I'm afraid I don't know about trees and lights, I would contact the company.
