  • Nice relaxing day in the sunshine. Popped in for lunch one day and I have to say I was surprised with how lovely the food was. Great menu and affordable prices.Yummy!

  • Really lovely country park nestled in the woods. The walks are great and perfect for the kids. Plenty of spots to sit and take in the wildlife. A small train line is there which is also very fun! We went on an open day and was shown all around the workshops which was very interesting! Been to go ape on a previous occasion, which is just superb, definitely recommend!
  • Great country park with facilities for all ages. Outdoor climbing animals, great narrow gauge steam train and big open spaces. Bike hire. Good food which is on the expensive side. If you want to save the entrance fee, park at Pottern Park Verwood and walk in. Level path along a river and open views.
  • A great facility run by the local council. Charging for car parking is a great way to attract families and manage numbers. A lot to do with more things always being added or changed.
  • Went twice during our stay in the New Forest. Lovely place - huge play areas for kids, fantastic walks, Go Ape, steam train, bike hire and bike trails. Parking is £9 for over 4 hours which when you consider everything that is there, I believe to be great value for money.
  • Really nice day out...great for the kids and the miniature railway is great fun. Play area for the children is huge with lots to adventure. Parking can be expensive, 2hours is nearly £7
