We absolutely loved it!! Gypsy Wood was ideal for our 18 month and 3 year old. My train mad son was in his element going on the train ride and playing with the miniature railway and my 18 month old loved seeing all the animals. We expected to spend maybe a couple of hours there and ended up spending the... More

When we arrived there was a warm welcome and very friendly staff. It cost around £16 for 2 adults and a 2 year old. I considered it a little expensive for what was on offer at first however we ended up staying 4 hours so worth it in the end. After the train ride (5mins) with Martin who was extremely... More

Such a lovely day out! Friend and I took our 3 year old daughters for a magical trip to Gypsy Wood. They enjoyed every part of it! Loved fairy hunting, train ride and couldn't get out of the gypsy caravan. Had our picnic up in the field surrounded by goats and alpaca's. Purchased a coffee which wasn't great! Visited out...

We visited with our girls 8&5 out of school holidays. They loved it! They ran about from the moment we arrived trying to take it all in. They loved the fairy hideouts and the animals and something different around every corner. It cost us £22 admission and if you take your own picnic then you could spend all day here.... More

Visited here recently with family and one small child, we all had a really great time! There were more animals and less fairy stuff than I thought but the place was lovely!

We visited here last year in August. From when you enter to when you leave I believe this place to be absolutely magical for young children. The fairies all around the place are a lovely touch, faces on trees, hiding places, little gatherings as you walk around, do not want to give too much away!! A visit to the fairy... More

My almost 4 year old absolutely loved it here. The whole place is just magical, with lots of animals and a little train - the train driver was fab! Lots to keep younger ones entertained, would recommend if you're in the area
