We were lucky with the weather but what a glorious place. Ok, some activities cost extra and I felt the Zorbs needed a little more space to explore but otherwise; WOW.... More

The main attraction is the lake where children and adults can have fun crossing the obsticles or attacking/defending the pirate galeon. The fact that you're playing in a lake makes it as much fun in the rain as in the sun. Take trunks or... More

Beautiful trip with a friend and two children aged 9 & 8 boy and girl and they had a fabulous time! My "brave" son wanted to on the High Ropes having done similar before but the cost prevented me from going with him £15 each on top of entry fee. They encourage an adult to go with under 10's but...

Entry price is reasonable, dogs on leads are welcome and there is stacks to do - some is free and activities such as high ropes, boats, zorbs and mega zip wire are... More

Came here to visit friends who were camping for 2 days and had a great time. Kids spent most of the time swimming and in the park. Food and customer service in the restaurant was amazing!!!! Will definitely go back again and again.

I have just returned from a 5 day camping break at this wonderful country park. We were so lucky to camp surrounded by such beautiful woodland and in such a clean and well set up park. It was my first time at the park but the others within the party have been returning year on year due to a perfect... More
