  • Had a great time with the kids. Lots of parking and paid for annual membership which covers two family cars, so we can come back as many times as we like. Loads of play areas for the kids and a nice r...  more »
  • Besides being home of the national collection of pines the pinetum is also excellent for a day out with the family of all ages. The children's playground is great for the little ones and there is a wi...  more »
  • Have been here a couple of times. We don't come too often because the car park fees are very high. I don't mind paying as the money obviously goes towards keeping the drunks so well maintained, but it...  more »

  • I didn't expect much when I was 'encouraged' here on a family outing, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a really nice location. There's a good variety in the landscape and plenty of places to sit down and enjoy a picnic. They've got a good website with lots of information on what they do there in terms of conservation. It's definitely worth having a look at that with the kids as well to make it a little more educational!
  • Absolute gem of a place for out doors people. Beautiful park with all the facilities, great for walking and caters for bicycles in a MAJOR way. Has a Go ape Rope walkway thingy there too. Great restaurant with tasty simple meals and not too expensive. Loads of picnic places and tables everywhere. We didn't take any bikes and just walked around, there are areas where cyclists cannot go if you are bothered by some of the inconsiderate riders..(99% are very considerate of pedestrians) but because the place is so large you hardly encounter cyclists. This place is free except for the Car parking which is about £5 for the day. Go visit now...
  • Excellent day out for my family and I, my granddaughter loved every minute of the stick man tour! Plenty of wide open spaces for a picnic along with a great cycle route. The play areas are also great for encouraging youngsters to explore, climb and play. For adults and teenagers go ape is brilliant, I went on it a few years ago to combat my fear of heights and I'm looking forward to going again.
  • Excellent for families with kids or anyone interested in exploring the many trails and activities available. I visited with my wife and baby girl, my sister and her family and my parents. The kids had a run around in the play area before we all had lunch in the cafe which has a great selection of food and drink, there's also plenty of seating indoors and outside. We then went for a walk on the Stick Man Trail before finishing off with some tea and cake. There was plenty left to explore and we'll be back again. Price wise the entry was £12 per car and the cafe was very reasonably priced especially for the portion sizes.
  • I'm not much of a tree hugger, but the planting is very well thought out, meaning that there are lots of nice views even if you aren't very interested in the details of every tree. Once you've finished with the pinetum there's a forest to explore, although a lot of the paths are also cycle routes so I imagine it would be busy at the weekend
