Thought it was slightly over prices for a wooded area, didn’t feel the need for them to charge those prices, but still it was a morning out did get a little lost.

A most unusual, lovely, and almost mysterious place: Seemingly endless winding paths, leading through gullies and along ridges, past trees and woodland ferns. Lots of 'Things to Find' for children, both in the forest and in an indoor labyrinth :) There are animals, a playground,...More

Spent ages wandering around this amazing woodland, never seen anything like it before. It's very mystical, you an almost imagine fairies and goblins appearing from behind mossy rocks! Kids and adults alike will love it. Try to go when it's quiet as lots of people...More

I'm not sure if I would have paid £7 entry if I knew it was going to be full of screaming children and only take an hour to explore. The Shetland ponies were super cute and friendly though. It was mystical and enjoyable to explore......More
