“Great for all the family”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We enjoyed pond dipping, duck racing, paddling in the stream, sitting by the fire, rope swings, tree climbing. We only stayed in the meadow this visit, but it was such a pleasant visit. Our daughter had a brilliant time. Such good old fashioned fun.

“Good old fashioned outdoor fun”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

National Trust properties are always good value but this very basic meadow and wooded walk is a joy for young children. Stepping stones, dam building, rope swings, den building, fallen trees to climb and a great area for pond dipping.

The biggest coronation chicken I have ever seen for just over a fiver, worth sharing 1 between 2 and we are piglets!

An absolute must visit to waste a couple of very relaxing hours.

“Nice cafe”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Visited as a group including pensioners & children aged from toddler to 7. Lady in National Trust office was very knowledgeable & friendly. Cafe was lovely, we stopped for lunch & there was a good selection including kids lunch boxes for a fiver. The rope swings were very popular with the kids, as was paddling in the river. Very enjoyable day out.

“Pond dipping and bottom dripping”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Yet another National Trust triumph. Pond dipping, tree climbing, rope swinging, Pooh Duck cheering and delicious lunch munching.

Shame it was the only day I failed to pack a spare change of clothes for my son, who inevitably sat in the stream :)

“A very relaxing day out for the whole family”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We went here with another family (4 adults and 5 children in total) and spent a VERY restful and enjoyable day. The kids had loads to do - rope swings, den building, pond dipping and generally running around doing all the things that children should be doing. The adults found a shady spot and sat around chatting all day in the certain knowledge that the kids were safe. An absolute gem of a place - you MUST go here!
