Amazing KoiCarp in the lake, crazy golf... More

Fantastic little place. This is a brilliant attraction with a twist, when the sun goes down the whole town lights up. From the choir at the abbey to the fun fare. The adjacent tea room/cafe does great cream teas and the lemon meringue is to die for.

We visited on Saturday with my 11 month old niece and found it to be lovely family attraction. The gentleman at the ticket desk was very welcoming and friendly, and stamped our hands so we could come and go all day.

Took my two children here over the weekend and they both loved it, my son is 3 and thought it was brilliant and fun, has a bit of adult humour in aswell but very discretely was worth the money to see there faces light up.
