I have been coming to this place for years and always have a brilliant time getting lost! We find something new each time we visit. This is the first time we've been out of season as we were staying at the gorgeous Tupgill Park cottages which included a free ticket. Obviously the getting wet part was not as much fun... More

Despite not having children, as most people there did, we absolutely loved forbidden corner! It was an amazingly quirky place, we spent 90% of the day having no idea where we were. The place was an insane, engaging adventure, you can't prepare yourself forth brilliant crazy things you can find here, Due to having to walk a fairly long way... More

Visited with friends, one teen and two young ones. Something for all ages, take a picnic to save on the pennies. You must book in advance, try for an early slot so the park is quiet, gets busy later in the day and this can spoil some of the surprises! Some parts are not suitable for the elderly or infirm...

Even on a cold wet December day it was fun. Quite a lot is underground in caves and tunnels, so good for all weathers. Think we were the only ones there without kids - but why should they get all the good stuff??

Back for another visit.. We loved it so much, we went back... But we had to find SANTA. We found him... Plus the other things we didn't find the last time. Still didn't find everything!!! Loved it.... So did my little family. The only negative ... The drinks that were served were not nice.

Fabulous, but I've never seen it so busy. Lovely atmosphere despite all the people and the foul weather! this time I was with two 12 year olds who loved it and we all had a lot of fun. I've been with smaller kids who enjoyed it on a whole different level. it is intriguing! Pizza in the restaurant is fantastic!

I am so glad I've read some reviews before we arrived as I wouldn't have been as prepared (especially my 6 year old who isn't keen on getting wet) We were entertained for 2.5 hours and had some food at the cafe after (which was ok) Overall very pleased.
