Visited with my son and two grandchildren aged 6 years and 3 years. It was a hot sunny day and the grounds are quite steep so we got a good work out just getting to the different sites but it was worth the effort and the children loved it, especially the tobbogan ride. Well worth a visit. I would say... More

Had a lovely day. The weather was the major problem with the day. We made the most of the indoor attractions. The cafè served lovely food and was a welcome break from the rain. Would certainly go back.

Had a lovely day out here. Lots to keep you interested and very reasonably priced. Our girls are 15,9 and 5 and they all enjoyed it. Quite hilly but loads of places to sit and rest if needed. Thanks for a lovely day out x
