Lovely park for families with young children as well as a great place for having a BBQ! The meerkats and Llamas are great additions and the free roaming of the peacocks is a great idea. The steam train is a good attraction for the kids. The parking season ticket should be for the family rather than just one particular car as a family with multiple cars I have to take the same car every time!

I walk my dog here, but used to bring my children when they were little. It's great for families as you can choose to pay to go on rides or let children play on the free play equipment. The park is used by joggers, cyclists and walkers too. There are often antique fairs, music night's and other events so there really is something for everyone.

Visited for one hour mid afternoon with our grandchild, we live local, we noticed that the parking ticket machine was covered over so presumed that there was no charge as we also noticed that cars were leaving through an open barrier, but when we left, there was a male attendant on the barrier who rudely demanded £3, when we questioned this he abruptly said that was the minimum charge! Rip off!!

Hello Alison, thank you for your review. We would always recommend for paying for parking before you leave. Please have a look at our website which goes through parking charges. Thank you.
