Good and safe place to take your Grandchild. Plenty of activities to occupy their time. It allows time for you to have a cup of tea or a packed lunch while they enjoy themselves. An animal park plus walks if energetic.

Earlier in the year my grandson, aged 4 , and I went to Oldown and had a wonderful day. We looked at animals, fed them, talked to them; he played on the trampoline and the little diggers and then went into the Adventure Park bit where he did practically everything. Yesterday I asked him where he would like to go,... More

I've been going to business lnches for years and have got used to the standard fare offered. Yesterday Old Down Manor gave us a superb abd different experience. They delivered 40 or so plates of a rich bisque with mussels, scallops and fish that really made everyone take notice. I know that the country park offers a variety of activities... More

First of all, I have to say that even if it rained, I spent an awesome Saturday there! It's a gorgeous place with magical walkways, fields of wild flowers and the atmostphere is just lovely, cozy and romantic. This is a hidden gem, indeed! The cafe was very good, with decently priced food and the bistro menu is mouth watering!... More

Checked the website before setting off to see if I could get a disabled/carer rate ticket - no mention. Got to to ticket office and there on the window it says "carer free - with proof". I don't carry proof with me all the time, as it's a valuable piece of paper, hence checking the website beforehand, so it cost... More

We visited this site on Bank Holiday Monday with our daughter and grand daughter. Always a pleasure visiting this place. Always something plenty to do and the 4 hours we were there passed very quickly. We missed the rabbits that were normally located in the hut approaching the entrance. Hopefully, they will be back for our next visit. all in... More

We recently visited the park, which was our first visit. Overall we were impressed with our visit, however we did feel that there could maybe be more added to appeal to adults, as it is particularly child-based. Other than that the only criticism is the sign-posting, as it was not immediately obvious to us how to reach the animal/adventure park... More

We visited here after doing a search for things to do with young children near us that wasn't too expensive. Found this place online and gave it a shot.

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
