Truly amazing experience for the whole family! Lovely walks in the forest as well as green expanses to play ball, fly a kite or give the dog a good workout! Great activities for both the kids and adults. The kids loved GoApe!

Hi sorry they is the Gruffalo sculpture but the rest have been taken away. You can follow the Gruffalo orienteering trail. The leaflet is £1.50 from the Cafe.
