Wonderful afternoon tea
Sep 2021 • Friends
I go here a lot with my little boy and we love it for a day out. I saw last time I was there that they did Afternoon Tea, so we went on a quiet Thursday afternoon for a colleague's retirement lunch. It was absolutely perfect, beautifully laid out with old china sets. The food was gorgeous, many of us commented that it was the best afternoon tea we have ever had, lovely sandwiches, homemade scones and 4 different types of cake! As a Coeliac the gluten free options of afternoon tea can be poor compared to the normal selection but this was by far the best I have ever had. For each of the normal sandwich, scone and cakes I had my own gluten free version. I cannot recommend enough and a bargain at just under £20pp including a traditional lemonade and unlimited hot drinks!

What an amazing place
Aug 2021
We had the pleasure of camping at Aldingbourne Country Centre over a couple of nights.
This is a truly amazing place, run by the friendliest of staff for the benefit of such a worthy cause.
If you have little ones, this is a must, it would be a great day out but even better when camping as you have free run of the park, soft play maze etc when the centre has closed to the public. They even supply you with a fire pit (it so difficult to find any camping site that do this nowadays).
A massive thanks to all the staff that made our few days so special. THANK YOU.

Fantastic day out and excellent value for money
Aug 2021 • Family
Amazing visit! A fantastic value for money day out, to a clean, friendly and well presented site.
From arrival to departure, this was an excellent day. Staff were welcoming at the reception desk and happy to explain the site for us first-timers.
The kids had a great time; soft play, playgrounds, maze, animals, they were very happy and entertained all day.
The animals were given plenty of living space in nicely designed living spaces. Its a shame that covid restrictions still stop interacting with animals, but thats life. Didn’t distract from the day.
All facilities were clean and modern, no fraying etc in site.
The cafe was fantastic, lovely food, good coffee and eco friendly.
If the camp site event runs next year, you will definitely have some more guests!

Definitely Worth A Visit!
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a wonderful time here today! The boys loved the animals, disappointed they couldn’t touch or handle any but think this was due to covid restrictions. The staff were lovely and helpful- great cafe and the whole place was spotless! Wish we lived nearer so we could’ve bought some plants too!

Lovely place for young children
Jun 2021 • Family
After spending half a day at Aldingbourne county centre I can say my children had a great time, ages 2 and 7 months. However the soft play and water and sand area is still closed which is a real shame! My kids love those areas, it also shortened our day. The place is well run, nice friendly staff, the animals are lovely and you can walk nice and close to them. The play area is perfect for young children. Lots of picnic tables so you didn’t have to eat at the cafe if you wish not. The cafe is lovely good quick service, the food was really nice. Good menu with different dietary requirements met. All in all we look forward to returning once everything is open again.

Quite possibly the best campsite in the world
Jul 2021 • Family
Camping

Part of me doesn't want to leave a review as I want to keep this secret gem of a campsite to myself, but that would be selfish and completely against what Aldingbourne stands for. This is their first season of allowing campers on site, but it has been so successful I hope they start doing it much more. Without and hesitation this is the best campsite I have stayed on. Excellent value for money, phenomenally kind staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and I haven't even mentioned the brilliant facilities. It's very small with only 8-10 pitches meaning there aren't many people around. It feels very safe so the kids can roam freely, playing on the huge array of activities, like sit on tractors, the huge maze, two indoor soft plays, water and sand park, and many more.
Can't recommend this place enough.

The best day
Jun 2021 • Family
We had the best day as a family and the weather was glorious. The centre was spotlessly clean and the food from the cafe was excellent. We can’t wait to come back soon.
