A fantastic place to spend with young children. The staff are always very attentive and helpful.
A lovely train ride and play area for little ones, we love the fairy walk, all you need is parents that have imagination to make it magical for their children.
I'm told more is being added when it opens in the New Year, looking forward to our next visit!

Came here for the Christmas event an meet Santa with the grand children. Extremely busy an was cold. Not enough entertainment to keep the little ones minds occupied. Especially in the cold. However after waiting for over two hours we eventually got on the train. For the grand children it was worth it...........

I booked 21 tickets for a Christmas train ride party for my Son who was to be 4. It was well priced and incredibly magical, the journey into Santa’s den was amazing for Children and the present was of a quality standard. I recommend booking as there was a long queue but it did move quickly. There is no need to get off the train, Santa walks along with his helper to give out sweets and he makes a good amount of time for each child.

The staff could not of done more to help us, we had reserved a party marquee which was a lovely shelter and they served us immediately all the food we had ordered which wasn’t too badly priced (3.50 a bacon roll and tea) Children got hot dog, chips, yogurt, penguin and a cake and that was well priced too. They did sell biscuits which were in my opinion highly priced but things like that are. The shop was reasonably priced also.

There was balloons for sale £3 each, not as pricy as I thought and rides where £1.50 each. It was muddy so would suggest you wear willies. Would visit again at different times of the year.


I can see how they fit it to themes through the year, it was amazing for what it was and really festive. The staff where all lovely and all the people who came to my Sons party where also over the moon.

This is a fun little adventure especially with two little boys. The train winds through the woods and see if you can spot the animals hiding. It's a bit pricey for a large family to have more than one ride though!
