The time to kill & a 14 month old to entertain, I decided to take my chances and head up here. The drive over was pleasant and its pretty well sign posted for someone like me who isn't from this area.
The car park appears to have plenty of spaces for the busy season.
To enter, you first need to go via the shop. The staff were very friendly and it cost me £5.50 to get in (my daughter was free). The path down to the glen was very steep with the pram and being a typical October morning, it was quite slippy. I had been offered to purchase a guide book for £1.60 which I declined. At the bottom of the path there's a sign post directing you to the characters. I went right which didn't seem to be pram friendly so double backed and went left instead which was fine
The characters aren't very good to a 30yr old but I imagine kids with healthy imaginations would find them great. My daughter loved old McDonald's farm with its real chickens. I found pushing the pram around it pretty easy, there are some steps but alternative routes ensure you can see everything.
I think this place would be great on a nice day, lots of room for kids to run around with swings and slides and its a much safer environment than going to a park.
I decided to stop in at the restaurant after walking about. To my surprise there wad a massive play area for under 5s. My daughter loved playing with all the toys whilst I heated up with a cup of tea. The only down side is the food is expensive & probably not home made. A baked potato, kids sandwich & tea was £9.70. But again the staff are very nice and on reflection worth the money given that 2 hrs spent in a similar play area in town would've cost more minus food!
I'd come back again if I was in the area to let my daughter explore the place better when she's better on her feet.
