Brilliant place to visit with children. My older one (she is 5) still remember Fairy God Mother and animals.

As with many of the other reviews, we did not expect much from this park. However there was lots to do here at your own leisurely pace. Upon arrival the staff were fantastic with the children. They really made them feel magical and told them to look out for the fairies and special keys. We would return.

We had a great time. There was lots to find in the wood. The animals were in excellent condition and a good size for an under three ie not big and scary. The staff were friendly and helpful and happy to engage with our little one.
The day we went on was very sunny and it was beautiful. The grounds were freshly mown and there was lots to play with and large spaces to run around in. All in all a great afternoon out with a small family and a grandma.

We visited Gypsy Wood yesterday in a group of 10 adults and 3 children. First of all it was very expensive at £6.99 per adult. It did state there was a discount for large groups on the price list but obviously our group wasn't large enough as there was no movement on price. The whole place consists of a small selection of farm animals standard with a petting zoo, a decent enough play ground and some other very poor quality 'attractions'. It was a gorgeous day so the place was looking its best. My favourite attraction was one called 'Insect Hotel' or something to that effect. I was expecting an indoor area full of spiders, beetles and other creepy crawlies. But to our disbelief it consisted of a pile of old pallets, house bricks and roof slates with plastic insects stuck to it which looked like were free from McDonalds! Not a real creepy crawly in sight. It would have been better to have an empty space. The whole place was very tired and in need of some serious tlc. Perhaps they should invest some of the extortionate amount of money they charge for entry!

Visited Gypsy Wood in mixed weather last week with 3 4yr old, 3 2 yr olds and 2 newborns. On arrival thought we might only get an hour there, but it's very deceptive and there's lots to do. In the end we stayed about 4 hours! All the kids and adults loved it.

Spent lots of time looking at the trains and animals and playing on the great playpark. Great worksheets with items and animals to tick off as you spot them. The girls adored hunting for fairies and the boys spent ages playing trains and generally running around!

Will definitely be back
