“Fantastic Facilities - A little expensive.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Wish that they could set pricing structure for activities at a more realistic level....I have 3 children and would need to take another job just to fund activities as most of the time each child pays more than min wage just to attend group activities..............TOO EXPENSIVE

“Rocks and Riding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

A country park with extras, a BMX track and a Boulder Park for rock climbers. According to what I have read the site is 100 acres. Built against a slope this gives a few interesting strolls and a quite hard for beginners cycle circuit, it also includes routes for horse riding and walks.
Personally I have mainly used the park for cycling, it is quite a workout and well worth the excellent panoramic views of town, countryside, industry and sea from points within the park. I have also enjoyed the park whilst walking, it is inclusive in a few countryside walk routes.
There is a Visitor Centre and a car-park, a large children's play area and I believe they have various courses and events in the park, archery and hedge-laying are a couple I have read about recently in the local media.
I hope this review has been helpful, for more information I would recommend doing a google.
