We have a family membership, and, although we have only used it once, i found our visit to Old Down Country Park a very enjoyable one. We all enjoyed the trampolines, shown in the picture! But what we most loved was the giant bouncy pillow in the adventure playground. The rockery was beautiful and smelled lovely from the flowers. The... More

I went to visit 9th Feb with my husband and daughter. I was very disappointed with our visit. I tried to change a nappy in the baby facilities, after spending 5 mins trying to get the pram through the tiny door I found that the change table was muddy. I told a member of the staff who said she would... More

I've been here several times over the years, but have noticed how pricey the cafe has now become. I visited a month ago and then visited again this week and in that time the coffees had gone up from £2.50 to £2.80. I really think this is a steep increase. The cakes are reasonably priced and are very good, but... More

We aim to make the cafe a cosy place to be especially in Winter months - so thanks for noticing. The park is open all year round and... More

I have taken my young grandchildren to Old Down on numerous occasions, from the age of one. I like it because it is easy to take them on my own. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good selection of animals and outdoor toys as well as the adventure play areas. Plenty of space to run around safely.... More

We weren't sure what to do about taking our 9year old to see Father Christmas and the Old Down experiences came across as being a bit different. Despite not being offered our members discount when booking, and the rather bored staff member who greeted us on arrival - this was lovely! A magical, candle lit walk down to the Grotto... More

Went here for a family day out. Had an amazing time till we went to visit the bunnies. As a rabbit owner myself I'm familiar with living standards, and was outraged that the rabbit had no hay. I notified the man who was looking after them but was met with this reply 'we don't give the rabbits hay after we... More

The facilities are fabulous in terms of the park and the trampoline play areas. The animals can be a little hit and miss, sometimes there are a lot of empty pens and the ones that do have animals in are mainly different type of chickens. We were a party of 3 adults and 4 children and we visit almost weekly.... More
