Great value for money. We went during a heatwave and it was just too hot to do a lot of the outdoor things but the hay barn was an absolute favourite!

Admittedly when we visited today it was very quiet which made it so much better for us. Great to be able to hand feed goats, llamas and even a water buffalo! Although a wet day, the children enjoyed both outdoor and indoor play areas too.

Went for a day out with friends and our children. Was pleasently surprised with how much there was to do. Love the big open space and all the activities, we didn’t get round them all. Definitely recommend, very good value for money.

Our son took us here. Great walk 2.8km. So glad I didn't do the longer route. Beautiful tall American redwood trees that took my breath away with their height. Even got to see a squirrel. Plan to come back here again. 😊

The main ticket is as above, but if you want to do some of the other activities like the train, the quad bikes and row boats, then theres a further charge, which can really inflate the price for the day. Its a great day out... More
