  • This place was fantastic! My three and five year old loved the fairy door trail, park and all of the outdoor space. The scenery is breathtaking and extensive. The visitors centre is very informative and helpful with pleasant staff. There is plenty of parking and relevant facilities for all needs. We'll be back again very soon and this place is now on our list of fun things to do in the holidays.
  • Great day out. Lovely walks, good cafe, very dog friendly. Some bike and horse trails too. Plenty of things for kids to explore.
  • Great for a Sunday stroll. Better maps around the walk would be useful so make sure you pick up a map from the shop before you head out.
  • Beautiful location especially when the Rhododendrons are in full bloom. The tea room is an ideal place for watching the herons build their nests
  • We visited this wonderful mystery land of fairy doors and creatures, our 2yr old girl was mesmerised by the wildlife features and wood carvings along the trails. The park and woodland is huge with miles to walk, impressively large picnic area for bbq's and close to amenities for family gatherings, the grounds are very well maintained, with good parking areas. The scenary and trees are truly beautiful, with amazing views. Highly recommended place to visit!
