My family and I have season tickets which we renew each year. The family and staff who work here are friendly and accommodate requests. We took the 'school bear' for a visit and we were able to get pic taken sitting on the engine. The main park has plenty of equipment for various ages, there is a separate under 5... More

This is a really lovely place to take young kids. It's somewhere for the whole family with a really well run tea shop, an extensive play park for little and big children, a toddler park with little huts in the woods (all pretty safe) and a wonderful place on a nice day to walk and enjoy family time. The railway... More

Grand children loved it here could not get them away from the trains and playground. The model trains were of great interest to them.

Visited EMSR so many times we bought a membership! So much fun even if you don't have a train ride. Lots of picnic space, clean facilities, children play for hours! I've always felt very safe here. Take lots of 20ps!

Our boys are now 7 & 9 and just about growing out of it but for the last 4 years this has been a regular haunt for us. Repeat visiting is very easy (we've been down weekend after weekend in the summer) due to its variety of things to do and great play park. I'd often take my 2 boys... More

Yearly membership is really cheap and allows you to purchase train rides for less than £2 each. So you only have to visit a few times to get your monies worth. Has a café, kids play area, nice walk around the lake. Just a nice way to pass a few hours with the kids.
