  • We visited the Gruffalo Trail with a 7yr old and 1yr old. Really well laid out and the Gruffalo book references etc were very nicely done. Great views. Trails all well maintained. There was an unmanned post so there is a suggested entry fee.
  • Great for young kids with some fantastic giant trees. Expected it to be a bit longer though.
  • Worth the visit. Need to be pretty fit to walk it.
  • It's in a beautiful wooded valley with a rushing river in the bottom. A wealth of shrubs and trees with a network of paths. There is a gruffalo trail for children of all ages.
  • The colours were amazing this Autumn. I have a 'thing' about trees so I was in 7th heaven in this lovely garden. Wish I was a child again so I could find the Gruffalo on the Gruffalo trail but it was still magical for me. On a practical note, it had just the right balance of maintained and wild natural garden. Loved it.
