First the positives - the Elf and Santa were good with the Elf telling a story about the tooth fairy and Santa was very good talking to the children (a nice touch was the information we had provided beforehand that he used). However, the gifts were disappointing - cheap and inappropriate - our almost 6 year old grandson was given... More

Dear Backwellian, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are glad to hear you had a nice time when visiting Santa this week. We are an outdoor venue so it can be fairly muddy. Perhaps we will make this more clear on our website for next year. With regards to the toys, we are sorry you felt... More

I visited this place in late November on a weekday with my 18 month old daughter. I wasn't really sure what to expect - a friend had mentioned this place in passing, otherwise I'd never have heard of it. The activities for children here are all outside and much of it is on grass, so I wouldn't advise going on... More

We were here for a wedding. The food was very good. I thought the bedrooms were lovely. Spacious with fabulous views. However the furniture was all for show. No keys in the wardrobe to enable you to hang your clothes and, worst of all and unforgivably, there were no toiletries to shower with. For the price we paid we expected... More

The place is stunning and beautiful with great views and the pictures look great but I wasn most disappointed when there wasnt enough wine for a glass each at the wedding breakfast. The supervisor refused to bring out any more wine, guests had to buy there own from the bar during the meal. We'd paid in advance for half a... More

We attended a family wedding here recently and what an absolute gem this place is. The manor house is set in beautiful grounds with stunning views. Staff were friendly, helpful and always on hand without being obtrusive. The food was excellent and the setting for the wedding just right. Overall the atmosphere here is relaxed with all needs catered. The... More

Went with one year old daughter. She loved the pets corner with chickens, ducks rabbits all roaming around free, and calves and pigs to see too. There's lots of play equipment for all ages too, and a lovely cafe. Definitely recommend, we are planning to have yearly membership.

Great adventure playground complete with zip wire & bouncing pillow, surrounded by paddocks of donkies, lama, jersey cows & goats. Not forgetting the big yellow bus, picnic area... More
