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

We had a lovely time here. The play area park for small children is great (bigger one looked good too). We had a picnic by the lake on the large grassy area. Easy to get round the play trail with a 3wheeler buggy. Not all of the adventure areas on trail were suitable for 1 and 3 year old but... More

This is great hidden gem. We particularly loved the play areas and the space for toddlers to cycle & run around. There was plenty of parking and a great cafe. We will definately be going again.

We were staying near the coast but decided to come here for a day out. We arrived late morning with a picnic in hand and started with the play trail. This was only about a mile long but took us well over an hour as our 6 year old had to be dragged away from each item of play equipment!... More

Visited here as a group of seven including three children between 2 and 6. We loved it here, so much to do in such calm and beautiful surroundings. We followed the trail with the play structures as our children weren't quite old enough for the Go Ape (£17 extra per child). The structures were amazing, all very different and excellent... More

the attraction itself is free, but parking is chargable. We love this place, the children love doing the walks and playing on the various featured climbing frames. You can hire a Segway, or take your bike to enjoy the miles of paths and trails. Picknic by the lake (you can also take your own BBQ), grab an ice cream and... More

We camped 10minutes drive away at Gundrys Farm caravan and camping site. Moors valley was an added bonus to our stay. We walked there with the dogs, and dogs, children and adults all had great fun in the woodland, on the play trail, eating ice cream and watching the steam engine. Very reasonable as there is no entrance fee,just a... More

First off I should say, this review is solely based on a visit to use the mountain bike trails. That said, the rest of the facilities there looked good but I can't really comment. The staff we met were good, knowledgable and friendly. If you're after some good mountain bike fun then Moors Valley is fantastic. What a beautiful place!... More
