  • We only had time to do the wonderful scenic drive and would have loved to have grandchildren with us who have loved the play park.

  • Place is amazing. Firstly, it's FREE. The play park is amazing. Kids loved it and quite hard to get them away from it. Then came the giants lair. An absolutely lovely walk. Fairy houses, some with little buttons to press so that the fairys talk to you. Lovely artwork along the path, and stories to be told. Creeping past the witch was next so that we didn't wake her up. Then on to a fairy house that you can go inside, which was a little maze, with a rope bridge as well. Kids absolutely loved this part. Next we found a musical bit in the forest where the kids could bang the drum, or play the metal tubes that made noise (to keep the witch away). Overall, loads to do, and plenty of exploring for the kids to do. Fantastic day out. Bring a picnic.
  • Great place to bring children. Lovely walks through the woods & great fun trying to spot the fairies! Spent around 3 hours here but could have stayed longer...will definitely be back again
