I visited Moors Valley primarily for parkrun on a Saturday morning while staying in the area. Parking is generally expensive at £3.50 per hour up to £10 for the day. This isn't so bad if you're a family but being a solo traveller this could have been an expensive option. The food and coffee in the cafe is very nice... More

There's loads to do which is great, our 2 sons love the first park you get to with the big slide and climbing area, our daughter who is only just walking was a big fan of the younger area with the sand. The train ride is actually quite long, sometimes a few places we've been to the journey has been... More

This is a great place with loads to do, just the recent hike in parking charges is a great let down. The parking was already high and to raise it further with no clear investment for the visitors is disappointing. Still has all the great features it did before and the new Guffallo Spotter trail is great

What a fantastic place this is! I can't believe we've never been before! We paid £9 for the car park but considering we were there all day and did lots of walking, playing, exploring, den building, Gruffalo hunting what a bargain this was! We took a picnic and there are plenty of picnic spots around the park. We are a... More

Our family enjoyed a couple of hours riding the Segway route at Moors Valley Country Park. We were all given a trial session and my wife decided it wasn't for her. She was given a refund. The rest of us had a greta time riding through the forest, especially when they had delimited the Segways.

Moors valley is a complete day out for everyone. The car parking is £10 for the whole day but with so much to do and so much space for the children to burn off all their energy it seems very reasonable. The gruffalo trail is ideal for the youngsters,there's even an app to make it more exciting!!!, the play trail... More

This is one of the most loveliest country parks I've visited. We initially came here to go on 'go ape', which is set in a lovely forest. Go ape was a great experience for all, set in the woodland, they are spot on with safety and those who weren't taking part were able to follow the trail around too, watching... More

Afternoon stroll in the park. Great walk along paths that go around this park. Were not aware that Dorset school holidays were different than Surrey so it was very busy and the steam trains were very busy.

Was a nice place to stay. We were with 3 families with kids and all of us got to do our own thing. The adults enjoyed the Go-Ape/Segway, kids in the play area and the train. Over all an excellent day out. I thought the parking was a bit costly.
