perfect for the kids

My kids love all kinds of animals so I take them here as much as I can. As a family we like being one with nature so this place is ideal.

Lovely park
Apr 2021 • Family
Lovely park to go to with the kids. Play area is well kept as are the grass areas. Beautiful stream/waterfall with a shallow area for the kids/dogs to play. Small zoo is maintained to a high standard, snacks available to purchase when buying tickets. Will definitely bring the children back

Great fun for families
Apr 2021
I came here on Saturday 10th of April 2021 with my wife and 2 year old son.

The park has has a children's zoo, tropical glasshouse, ornamental gardens, nature trails, adventure & toddler Play areas, Gift shop, Café, exhibition gallery and a Golf Course!

We went to the zoo and adventure & toddler Play areas.

The zoo is small and only has some small animals but it's great for under 5's and very cheap to get in.

The adventure park has one of the biggest slides I've ever seen and my son went flying down it even though he's only 2 and absolutely loved it!

Hidden gem
Feb 2021 • Couples
The courtyard cafe has always been a favourite but being opened during lockdown is honestly a saviour. From the staff to the quality of coffee and cakes, every element is simply great. A little hidden gem in the middle of the country park. I’m writing this to show my appreciation to the friendly faces serving up some warm food and drinks after long local walks. Thank you to all the staff for cheering us up, serving with a smile during hard times and keeping open for us to find enjoyment from the little things that matter. Well done 👏🏼 x

Rip off
Jan 2021 • Couples
Iv just seen this is under new management ,husband and I decide to have a coffee after our walk and all I can say it will be the last £8.60 for 2 coffees and 1 empire biscuit , I do not mind paying for good coffee or good baking but really !!! so if your a young family maybe thinking about lunch ... pack your own . Young girl serving was lovely tho ... such a shame .

Great playpark
May 2020 • Family
I take my 11 year old son here occasionally with our dogs. We have visited the small animals centre and mamaged to spend almost an hour watching the Birds and Meercats without realising. This is excelent value for money.

The playpark is sited at the top of a grassy slope overlooking a field that is excelent for dog exersize or ball games. Just beyond that is a footpath along the river that predominantly keeps you inder the woodland canopy and follows the river glen.
