Thank you for your review we are glad you enjoyed your day. Unlike most other attractions we didn't want to charge for our Easter Trail. We felt that including a free trail for every child without a pencil was much better value for money for...More

We really enjoyed the fantastic Easter trail today in beautiful sunny weather. My boys were particularly impressed with the full sized Easter eggs as their reward for doing the trail. It really is a lovely place to visit.

Hi although we welcome all ages, the terrain is not suitable for prams or pushchairs so youngsters would either need to be walking or carried :-)

15 minutes before scheduled departure, however it can take 5 mins to walk up to the Follies reception centre from the car park so if you work on arriving on site 20 mins before departure, you won’t go far wrong.
