This place never fails to get the kids worn out as its so big with a lot to do, we normally do the play trail but this time decided to go on a bike ride. My only dig at Moors valley is the amount that's charged in the car park when they almost always make money from the visitors anyway.

I would like to highly recommend birthday parties at Moors Valley to anyone who is looking for something different for their child. My children had joint birthday party so the group was very diverse. Even though they enjoyed the bug hunt. There was lots of interesting activities for kids in diverse age group (4 - 9 years). Although you have... More

As well as the beautiful forest walks there is lots to do here and fantastic for children. We did feel that the loos however really did let an otherwise wonderfully run place down. Was also disappointed to discover the gift shop is now squashed in the middle of the visitors centre and offers very little which is a shame. The... More

We (2 adults plus a 6 and 7 year old visiting from Australia) had a fantastic time here.....the Play Trail was a lovely walk through the forest and was about the right length for the kids with enough adventure areas along the way to keep them entertained. The miniature train railway is an absolute gem as well. The tree surfing... More

We had a fabulous day out here at the weekend , train ride was brilliant and the kids really enjoyed themselves. Only thing I would say is take a picnic , the food there is very overpriced, a sandwich at £3.50 and it wasn't anything special, a sausage roll at £3 and was very over cooked but only in the...

Brilliant day out for everyone, great dog walk, parking is a little expensive, if you take a picnic then take a bag for your rubbish as their are no bins, also very few dog bins around. Great tree top walk, go ape center and seaways there, plenty of benches for eating, toilets were clean too. Just remember your number plate... More

This is a fantastically well run open heathland/forest interspersed with lots of fun things to see and do and there is a barn that houses different things such as photographic competitions and it also has a cafe with a great array of food including yummy cakes and coffees. There is Go Ape for the more adventurous, (like a mini assault... More
