We were looking for somewhere to break up a long drive home and let the children run some energy off and found this little gem! A bouncy castle, a play park and a train ride. They also had 2 nostalgic slides, a tree house slide and an old boot slide from when we were younger. Although it's not very big, it's great value for money and we all enjoyed it, with children's ages 14, 10 & 3. The train ride was lovely and the toilets were spotless. The little shop sells refreshments and gifts, also very reasonbly priced and we were able to get lovely little slate souvenirs to bring home for grandparents. We wish we lived closer to return!

My hubby bought me a train driving experience for my birthday last year and today 21/04/22 I got to do it, I was met by the lovely Bob who was an amazing tutor and I got to drive the train up and down the track not just once but twice. Bob was very encouraging and taught me so much and he was very friendly and funny as well. We were welcomed in the ticket office and the place which is family run was amazing and I wish I lived nearer I would be able to volunteer Thank you all for a lovely day

Absolutely superb! £8 for 3 plus Free for under 1’s. A 20 minute railway ride. Activity park in with price. Brilliant value and a perfect way to kill a couple of hours. The site is expanding too. A lot of fun. Highly recommended
