I remember going here when I was a kid and I loved it, so recently I suggested taking a day trip there being able to take the dog with us. It is fairly expensive to get in, and the gift shop isn't as impressive as I remembered, but it is pretty and we had a nice walk around the lake.... More

We have visited Wellyboot Park (as our 4 year old grandson insists upon calling it!) several times this summer. Having read other reviewers comments, a few we agree with and most that we do not. This is our perspective – Yes, the initial cost of entry is high, particularly for those us who are retired and on a fixed pension... More

I stayed here for 3 days with my little boy in a tent and we had a great time. We were based in the tent field and we had no problems with hard ground but I could see other pitches that looked rather hard and not used very much - maybe only used when the park is fully used, not... More

Love this place! Great fun for little ones (my children are 3 and 7) - lots of space to run around and have a picnic. Very safe. The kids love the jumping pillow and the woodland play area. Not expensive to get in and you can easily spend a full day here.

We camped for two nights with friends, 4 adults, 4 kids (all 6 and under). Good camping, facilities are basic but okay for short stay. Pitches are well separated. Bonus is that entrance to the park is included and we were there for the family fun weekend, a great weekend had by all.

Stayed here for two nights. Nice and clean (except for showers) but could have more for adults! Good park for kids though. Should have quiet pitches as neighbour was moaning that the kids were making to much noise even though they were not. Easily solved by having quiet pitches for those who want to go on holiday and be quiet!!!!

We had a family day out consisting of 6 adults and 2 toddlers (a ratio that is needed). We luckily had amazing weather so all attractions were open and running meaning that there was lots to do and you get your entrance fee worth of time at the park. We took a pack lunch, although there is a well stocked... More

Our experience here started very badly by having no guidance by staff as to where we would find our designated camp area, and then as we was driving around lost in the campsite we was confronted by the "warden" who has possibly the worst customer service skills that I have ever experienced , who accused us of causing disturbances to...

The first time i went here i thought it was expensive and a bit underwhelming. Then i had children and i quite literally love this place. I think it is a bit much for a day trip. But as i have the season ticket i go all year long. I love it. So much to keep my daughter entertained. Since... More
