We bought a voucher from the site ' little bird ' which gave you half price entry and we payed £15 for a family of 4.
We were a bit hesitant after reading a few reviews but were pleasantly surprised, the kids LOVED it!
We were blessed with a lovely sunny day, we spent about 4 hours there and had plenty to do. The gardens are lovely although in the summer I should imagine they are at their best, a few of the animals were not around but again I should imagin this was to do with the time of year. The peacocks though ..... Georgous and so many around for you to look at.
The best part of the day was the enchanted forest, it's huge. We walked there , after about 20 minutes there is a play area that the kids loved, we moved on from there and had a fantastic walk in the woods occasionally comming across the huge swings in the trees that my husband and 10 year old
daughter loved . We came back from the forest in the boat, this was manned by a lovely and friendly gentleman who threw a few facts in on our journey back . We had to pay for this, £5. So not too expensive.
So all in all a lovely day, made all the better from the weather. Not sure if its worth the £30 full price ticket ( and then the boat on top ) but we will definately be getting another half price voucher to go back soon.
We didn't visit the cafe but it looked a little expensive for what you got, a picnic would be perfect if you want to eat whilst you are there.
A note to the management ..... Your not on face book as we tried to 'check in' whilst we were there , I really think this would raise your profile and for people like us who are local it would get our friends asking what it was like when they could see that we had been there. Also maybe some activity sheets for the kids ??
But a lovely day out , thankyou!
