Had a fabulous day today at the fairy wood. I went with my mum and dad and my two children (6 and 3). The kids loved it. Around every corner there was something more exciting ... Giant footprints, massive chair, donkey rides, trampolines, fish catching, fairy handing out wishes coming true... My daughter told me that when she is a... More

Visited as a party of three adults and grandchildren aged from 20 months to 11yo and spent a completely enjoyable whole day at the park. The entry prices were very reasonable for a whole day's fun and being able to take a picnic lunch in was a bonus. Plenty of picnic tables dotted around the site as well. The layout... More

Visited with son (2) and had a wonderful day - trains, ride on toys, animals and much more. Plenty to keep him entertained for hours. Never been to a place quite like it - he's still talking about it now 2 weeks later. Only negative was food available - seemed to be limited and poor quality, so would take picnic.

My two year old son and 13 and 8 year old nieces loved it here. We spent a full day looking and cuddling the animals, building dens, riding the trains and jumping in the trampolines. There was plenty to do and see and plenty of fairies to hunt down. My only criticism is the cafe could do with being a... More

Gypsy wood is an absolutely lovely family day out. Lots of things to do for the little ones and space to run and explore. What struck me was how looked after the park is with such attention given to how families can have fun. Special mention for staff member, Gethin, who looks after animals and today managed the animal corner.... More

We visited today with our 3 children (10,5&3) we all enjoyed our visit. Our 3 year old daughter loved the fairy houses, meeting the fairy, and milking the cow. Our boys were in heaven with the enormous miniature railways, train and play areas. We spent a few hours there but could have spent the whole day there quite easily as... More

Overall thought this was a great day out and reasonably priced for families with young kids, ours at 7 and 4 enjoyed the whole place, from the animals to the trains and the muddy wetland walk. Nice old fashioned family day. They loved the pedal tractors and trampolines. Worth a visit particulalry if you have under 8s but best on... More

Many thanks for your review!! I can only apologise that you landed at the café after a complete mad rush and that there were no clear tables.
