We visited today and our 1st impression was that there didn't seem very much to do. However our 2 children (aged 4 & 6) had a great time driving the model trains, playing on the dumper trucks and in the castle. They enjoyed looking for the witches hiding in the woods on the train ride, feeding the goats and playing... More

We recently spent a day at Gypsy Wood during a week long holiday on Anglesey and it was my childrens favourite day of the holiday, and there was plenty of competition! I have 2 girls age 2 and 6 and i think this place is ideal for their ages. It wasn't crowded or too busy and we were able to... More

This was our second visit to Gypsy Wood and it was just as good the second time around. Our two little boys have talked about it non stop since our first trip in 2013! The addition of the small train ride was great and I certainly didn't mind paying to go on it a second time during the day -... More

There's something special about Gypsy Wood! It's not your usual action packed 'theme park' but it's quaintness and relaxed atmosphere makes for a great day out. Best on a sunny day...I wouldn't bother visiting if it seems like rain. There are a selection of animals to see and pet and some great fairy houses to enter. There are lovely places... More

My kids are probably just too old (9&10) for the small farm animals, plastic dolls and kids playground toys, but if you have younger ones it's OK for a few hours, once again I found this attraction offered no entrance fee advantage for single parents!!

Sorry you felt the park did not suit your children . We try to be fair with pricing and keep as simple as possible rather than have complicated offers and discounts.Thank you for the feedback all is noted for winter planning decisions. More

The first thing that appealed to us was the spaciousness and lack of crowds queuing. Our grandson was captivated by the extensive model train set some of which he could control. The train ride through part of the grounds helped make his day. No doubt his 2 month old sister will be keen to see the fairies in a couple... More

Going off the leaflet we planned a visit to Gypsy Wood expecting to be there a few hours, we stayed most of the day. We took advantage of tesco vouchers we had for the place but found that if we payed full... More
