We visited as a way to break a long car journey, as national trust members we thought we could get a bite to eat and let the children stretch their legs on the playground. We quickly found that most of the sites facilities were restricted and we felt treated like second class citizens until we paid an additional entry, having paid the £19 upgrade (normal family entry is £37.50) we discovered a very odd place indeed day glow goth clowns cover pigs with mud for children to wash off. The traditional sweetshop was in closer to a school tuckshop which even had empty plastic sweet jars on sale. The play ground was very limited and offered much less than the average municipal park considering the number of visitors. Thoroughly disappointing and I have to wonder why the national trust has allowed itself to be associated with this money grabbing operation and not stuck to providing the high standards we are used to at its other sites.
