We've been to Rosliston twice now. My daughters are 2.5 and just over 4 and they LOVE it there. Just £2.50 to park the car and there are playgrounds and walks galore. We always treat ourselves to a cuppa and an ice-cream in the cafe. Last time we went we were there for five hours. Perfect for the summer holidays!

The best bit was taking my son to see the Birds of Prey experience - superb and very professionally done by James. He knows his stuff and involves everyone present. There is a good variety of birds which usually culminates with the superb... More

We decided to take a picnic for Father's Day, we sat down near the children's play area so my two daughters could go and play. Unfortunately my youngest daughter wouldn't even go near the park due to the noise of two strimmers coming from it. At times it was like the children trying to play, were in the way of... More
