Absolutely fantastic place for families or couples, a good 3 hrs of fun and there is a walk too if you want to make a day out of it. The barn serves good food too so overall very good day out

Absolutely brilliant! Not for the faint hearted though. I feel like a modern day Jane (from Tarzan). The staff are friendly and helpful, and put at ease straight away. Would definitely recommend!
