Lots of things like zip wire and play park for kids. I would suggest taking picnic like we did as cafe small but lots of benches. Would definitely be here a... More

Took a picnic as cafe looked a bit grim, lots of picnic tables. Daughter loved meeting the Fairy Queen and both children loved the train, all the animals,... More
