Visited gypsy wood on a rainy day but our 3yr old and 10yr old loved it from the very start. Being able to control the model railway to seeing the many animals and the boys are still talking about meeting the fairy princess along the way. As it was very wet and train wasn't working the staff gave us a... More

Excellent activities for all ages especially our 2.5 year old. Lots of scooters and trucks to ride on and a nice park. Nice range of animals and not too big to get around.

Took my family here thinking that it would be like all the other second rate attractions but what a gem. Great model railway, excellent play park and outdoor toys for the kids. Maybe not too many animals but the fairy and gypsy theme made up for it with my two girls. Really well done and the new ride on railway... More

Took my 2 and a half year old daughter here whilst on holiday and she and we loved it. Lots to do and a bit different from the normal park. Obviously the magical theme is different and great, but it still has the animals to pet and yet also other things suitable for youngsters, such a mini train ride, go... More

My partner and I took our four youngest children here on May 31st. Easy to find and what a lovely place it is! Plenty to do and see (we stayed from mid-morning to almost closing time). Little trains move along a track with lots of detail, you can stop and start the trains via some simple switches. A nice sized... More

It was nice to find an attraction that caters so well for young families rather than having to amuse a toddler with one or two features at a park aimed for older children. Informative for adults, with nice well kept gardens and woodland, the park is full to the brim with fairies, small animals and trails all suitable for little... More

We took our 7 year old to Gypsy Wood yesterday for a treat. To be honest I was not expecting much but both my husband and I were really surprised by the place. It is not large but we spent four hours on a cold day there and thoroughly enjoyed it. If the day had been a nice day and... More

It doesn't look particularly awe inspiring from the outside and is slightly off the beaten track, but was somehow a little more magical as a result. There's a lovely story as to why it is called gypsy park and why it is there. That felt special to me. The children loved the donkeys. One of the llamas spat at us,... More
