“Great outdoor fun without being tacky”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

My 7 year old son and I had a great time in Ambleside at White Platts recreation ground. The crazy golf is slightly better than most others and the mini golf/pitch & putt was great fun. The premises is clean and well looked after and the attendants were polite and very accommodating to a left-hander. There were plenty of other activities available and these looked just as popular. I recognised some other players from a few days before so like us, they had returned. With a season ticket you could spend all day there, but we found it really convenient to kill a couple of hours after a walk or day out somewhere else.

“Brillant Gardens, Amazing Crazy Golf course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

I visited white platts with my 3 children. My first impression was clean and tidy and well maintained ,the bowling green looked great as the young guy who was working was cutting it was running back and fourth to serve customers and his manner was polite and helpful. The crazy golf course was fun and has to be the best one I have played on. The hanging baskets and flower beds looked wonderful great mixture of colours. We had such a great time we will be sure to come back and play again soon. And great value for money too.
