A good range of local produce and they take debit card payments. We got some wild flower honey, local jam, tasty cheeses and local meat. All taste great. Also other things to do there like bowling

The parc is a great place to go and spend an exciting afternoon with kids. We recently took a number of children wake boarding and then go-karting. The guy looking after the wake boarding was really lovely, great with the kids and very helpful throughout. The equipment however was very tired and worn and the area was generally scruffy and unkept. That said they all had a great time and we would go back. The go-karts were well maintained however again the area around the track was not. We eat in the cafe and the food was perfectly nice and a good price for what you got. It was not gourmet but it is what you would expect for a little over £5 for the main meals - no complaints here. Basically a good day out if you look through the untidy and unkempt facilities and just go to have fun that is reasonably priced.

The park sells itself very highly, but when you get there you can see it needs major maintenance. Even the signs are old and shabby. The entry desk looks unkempt and the man serving my family, although pleasant and cheerful, did not put much effort into his appearance. The floors are dirty, the windows finger marked, the place has a worn out smell to it.

We did archery first and were only given two arrows, and the young gentleman said its because there weren't enough for three each. A young girl brought some more to the area when we were on the last target but we were not given more. The archery was enjoyable but the field needs trimming and the equipment needs maintaining as the arrows fall off. We then did gokarts which was excellent, apart from having to wait for helmets. My husband did quad biking which was excellent, and then we bowled as ice skating was not open. I have to say the Canadian and Welsh (Lara?) girls serving behind the bar were amazing and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of, great customer service but it was evident they were run off their feet. The Canadian was running to the front desk and back to serve as the gentleman was gone, surely more staff required as it was very busy that day. The Canadian even climbed into the bowling machine to fix it straight away when it broke down, when we expected to be told it was broken end of story, as most of the lanes were having problems and it was obvious she didn't have time to leave her post. Despite both the girls looking extremely exhausted they both gave us 110% of their attention and even joked with the children when returning shoes. Most of the staff look to be in their early 20s, which worried me as they make you sign a liability waiver to enter the park, but all the young staff were mature and well presented. My husband and some friends went gokarting again the next day, and he also spoke highly of the girls in the bar and front desk, particularly the foreign girl who bantered with them. Pleasant, attentive, and made us all feel like we were welcome, despite the dirty presentation the place has. Please tidy the place up and we'll be back for sure - if it weren't for the staff my review would be less stars.

The staff were friendly and helpful and food was ok. Junior quad bikes - my 10yr old son and 2 friends not impressed as they were very small and extremely slow for their age and could only go one at a time as they only had 1 bike, Go karts- says min age 8 again my son and friends had to go separately with an adult as they were to small, should have height as well as age restriction if we would have known they couldn't go together wouldn't have bothered. Bowling - 4 lanes broken couldn't get a game. Nice area but was not impressed children felt disappointed.
