We pasted this place on our family holiday and stopped to have a look round. Plenty of places to park and you could watch everyone going on the tree top activity. We decided to have something to eat in their cafe first. What a big mistake that was. The cafe appeared to be empty and we were the only ones... More

Great way to spend a few hours after sampling the great food and service in the cafe. Some lovely gardens and walks to explore with some peaceful spots to sit back and relax.

Such a nice place for the children only to be ruined by a car parking fine. PLEASE BE AWARE. I parked up at the Brockhole centre, after a great visit I returned to the car and typed in my incorrect reg (not knowingly) it prompted me to pay an amount in which I did. The machine took my money around... More

freindly helpful staff with maps provided and lots of information on hand. Easy to find. Souvenirs available to buy but a little pricey which is to be expected.

We were there recently with our 6 years old son. When we arrived, the staff were really friendly in helping to orientate us and distributing the pamplets for the area. We were thrilled to discover so many fun activities for our son. My son was super looking forward to the pony ride. When we arrived at the pony station, one... More

A great place to go but two boys on the giant trampoline nets...too much! Half an hour to 45 minutes would suffice. The canteen/cafe is nice enough but the toilets were a but grim.

The new tree top nets were much appreciated and my young children loved them. Fantastic value for money and so much to see and do around the estate we could have stayed another day if... More
