  • A wonderful place to visit. Free entrance and most amenities are free!! A huge wooden owl to climb up with lots of little places to investigate. A big play park with swings, trampoline, slide, roundabout and a swing for wheelchair users too! A big wooden crocodile that children crawl down to get into the park. Also a lovely sand pit with small wooden climbing frame and slide (buckets and spades can be bought on site). More things to climb on and another swing lead into the forest - excellent for exploring, building shelters and playing hide and seek! There is also a small ball park, crazy golf and birds of prey for a small fee. There are plenty of grassed areas to play ball games. We usually take a picnic but the cafe has great food and is reasonably priced! Cycles can also be hired onsite. I just love this venue and visit many, many times a year!!
  • Great for easy walks with the family. Big play area and natural play such as den building. Nice cafe. There's also a visitor centre and a shop. Lots of other activities available for a charge but access to the centre is free except for parking.
  • An excellent day out! Set in a lovely location, we were given an informative but light hearted introduction to a decent variety of birds of prey. All the falconers were knowledgeable and friendly and gave everyone in the group a fair amount of time to hold and fly the birds and provided us plenty of time to take lots of photos. Well worth the two and a half hour drive each way.
  • Beautiful Nature Reserve with plenty of activities for the adults and kids alike. The place has 6 forest lodges and is very well equipped with all the white goods. Great location to explore The Peak District from.
  • Currently here now sat in cafe. My son is doing a faĺconry experience day. He is loving it holding birds etc. He's had to go on his own though as it's £10 each to watch child or adult no matter the age tad expensive. There's a fantastic park here and lots of walks nice little shop but other shops shut shame for a weekend. Every where is clean but if u require food it's not so good cafe opens at 10 but no sasauge rolls or pasties available till 11 and all sold out by 12 why on the weekend full of visitors bikers etc would you not make more ? . I've currently been waiting 25 mins for a jacket potato a kids sandwich a portion of chips and one other sandwich. There are currently 12 people in here. I work with food and know this is a long time to wait especially with 5 members of staff on. Staff were not friendly at all in cafe looked down there nose and couldn't break a smile . When food arrived it's was very nice well presented and good value for money and the member of staff that brought it smiled hooray. Just cafe let the place down.
