Every time we come to North Wales we always make sure we fit a trip to Gypsy Wood as my Son who is 4 years old is totally mesmerised by the trains and has often said he wants to live there. We will be going to Wales again next April and will be visiting again

Actually my girls liked both: fairies and trains. We went there a few times and we always enjoyed it. Great place for kids to play (playground), to see some animals, to milk the cow and many more. Come and check.

Visited here after family friend recommended it to us whilst we attended the area on holiday. What a lovely place for toddlers. Spent most of the day here. Staff were all lovely and the grounds were kept immaculate. Miniature train set up that is activated by buttons for the little ones, a train ride along the park, magnetic fishing, animals... More

A great place to take children. Lots of things for them to do and use their imagination when playing as children should. Not cheap for a family but a great day out with a picnic on a sunny day.

Lovely place to visit. Clean, tidy, something fun everywhere you look. Older children may be a little bored after a while but my 2 and 4 yr olds loved it and can't wait to go again. Fairy queen made their day. Train ride was brilliant fun. Lots to do. Model railway was fantastic. Very reasonable entry fee. Nice animals. Best... More

We stumbled across this place by accident. We paid the entrance fee (absolute bargain when compared to others in the area) & proceeded on our way. We spent a good 6 hours here & did alot of the activities more than once & they still didn't feel repetitive. The whole place really does have a magical feel for kids (&... More
