  • Excellent spot for families to chill out. The woodlands walks are loved by kids who keep discovering fairy doors, the wishing well and other attractions. there's also a playground where families can have a picnic while kids run around. House tours, farm animals and reptiles available too. Great spot, very affordable. Only €8 entry per car that's it.
  • Loved that there were different things to do, coffee shop which has lovely outdoor seating area. Craft courtyard. Tour of house. Woodland walks. Going back to do scarefest in October
  • What a fantastic inexpensive family day out, would strongly recommend it, staff very friendly and helpful, very child and childish adult friendly 😆
  • Great value at €8 for the whole family, great playground, archery for all the family with friendly instructors, woodland walks, fairy walks, good food and even an ice cream counter. Watch out for the Gruffalo in the woods!
  • Excellent, a great day had by all, explored the gardens, then did house tour, followed by lunch and finished off by a walk in the woods.
