Discovered today was a special countryside day in the park with loads of attractions for all to take part in. Plus the steam railway had an open workshop day, just the thing for small boys to enjoy. The play park is excellent with one area for older children and a sand area for younger with excellent activities, frames, slides, swings... More

In the area on holiday and went along to take a walk with the dog. Enquired at reception about the walks and the fact we had a dog, given directions and advice about where we could go with our dog, where we could let him off lead and where the dog bins were placed. All very helpful for a first... More

Yesterday saw the world & his dog at Moors Valley. Not long after arriving my doggy had to go. Could I find a dog bin - NO - it took nearly 20 minutes to find one. This will not encourage people to pick up their dog's mess. A few dog bins near dog parks and around the lake would be... More

fantastic walking paths around the forest & lakes, we had lovely day out clear skies, but parking £8 a bit pricey, could have been better, never mind the park is worth it!. The path in the Moors Lake were flooded, we had our wellies & was fun!

Moors valley country park is a fantastic day out with so much to do you will actually be hard pressed to fit it all into one day whatever your age! The charge for entry (car parking charges only) about £8 for a full day, well worth it. There are two fabulous play areas, a play trail through the forest which... More

We've been visiting here for the last 20 years, at first with our young children and then continued once they had moved away. The Country Park is brilliantly managed and has marvellous walks, kid's play areas/adventure trails, a reaaly good miniature railway complete with 4 platform main station and also has an amazing treetop activity. Additionally, Seasons restaurant (well, really... More
