  • Took 2 of my nephews to Peatlands Park yesterday. Not too many about the place. Great walks. Pity the children's train wasn't operational today as the children would have just loved to get a run on it...  more »
  • I would have rated this place 5 stars . It is a beautiful place. Pitty about the highly abusive staff who work there. They hate anyone with dogs. Very lucky they didn't get punched !!!  more »
  • Was there yesterday n the toilets were a disgrace.everyone of the ladies n disabled were full n not train running either ..was few yrs from ive been to this place n i used to love it .a wee jaunt on the train was great n the tea rooms didnt seem open either.had a good day anyway n will be back with a picnic
  • Beautiful large park for a walk. Great for kids. Loads to see and do.
  • Its less than half a mile from the M1 motorway with plenty of free parking (no height restrictions). The main gate is closed at night and the closing time will be displayed at the entrance. There is a small railway that not always open so youll have to ring up before hand to check. Theres also a cafe that ive never seen open. The toilets are open with hot water in the sinks and a dog drinking bowl outside. They also have a few toilet areas for dogs. Dogs are aloud of their leads but must be in sight of their owners. There are severial flat walks, some on board walks through the Bogs and other with gravel through trees. There's a duck pond and plenty of picnic tables.
  • Lovey place for a quiet walk
  • Great place for a slow walk or more intense exercise. Some for the trails can get quite wet and muddy.
