Staying near Romsey on holiday and wanted something that wasn't too expensive. We took packed lunch and had a fabulous time on the "play trail". Our girls (4 and 6) decided they'd prefer to do this than meet another Gruffalo (1st at Delamere Forest). We couldn't get them away. We followed the trail around and they loved all the different...

Staying in Poole on holiday and wanted to meet our 2nd Gruffalo (1st @Westonbirt). 4hrs cost us around £5 to park so cheap day out for a family of 3. Well kept park. The Gruffalo is set by the entrance and has picnic benches surround it so we had a picnic with the Gruffalo much to my daughters pleasure. The... More

4 adults and 3 children had a fab day out at Moors Valley. So much to see and do.The children loved the large playground, and the train ride. The walks for the children are good too. The hot chocolate very yummy. You need to pay for the car park.

We used Moors Valley for a recent staff meeting and finished the day with a team building experience on Go Ape. Moors Valley provided a good sized meeting room which will comfortably seat 20 to 25 people. It was good value and comfortable, although a little basic with facilities offered. They will provide lunch if requested, outside the meeting room... More

We visited the park to attend to GoApe! tree top adventure. That was nice, it's a great venue and worth a visit. The forest is nice enough too, relative quiet, no road noise noticed. I review a lot of venues whenever I can and am usually very lenient and not easily put off. So, why only 1 star if all... More

We were struggling what to do, but we decided Moors Valley was the splendid idea to go to. We first went on the train just in case of the rain getting heavy. The tickets were even cheaper than I expected. The little and big park have a great variety of different things: Big Park = climbing, zip wire, rock climbing... More

I can see why so many cars were parked around the area. There are plenty of areas close by where people park up and families ride into Moors Valley without paying the extortionate parking rates. Once inside the are miles of walking / cycling tracks in perfect safety away from the roads so you can see why its so popular.... More

We visit Moors Valley Park quite frequently with our family. Our two year old loves the play area, little train and woodland trail walk. There is so much to do, you can easily spend a day here. Plenty of refreshments, lunches and lovely spaces to picnic and even have a BBQ. Only downside is the car park is quite pricey,... More

We visit often with friends. All the children love walking around and playing on the many climbing apparatus throughout. We always take a picnic and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. It is Dog friendly which is fantastic . Car park is about £8 for the day but bearing in mind it is free to visit.. It makes a very cheap day... More
