  • As others have said, a great little old-school day for families with little ones. Smaller than expected, but off peak-season it was nice and quiet, my 3 yr old loved the 2 train rides, and all the big buttons to press for the model displays! Soft play was excellent, as were the ball park and indoor sand pit. It's all really thoughtfully done. A pound here or 20 p there for some of the toys didn't feel like a rip off at all to me. Plenty of places to sit for the grandparents. It's obviously a family run place and they've clearly put the profits gradually back into more little attractions. Didn't try the cafe but there's a half decent pub across the bridge and they'll stamp your hand so you can come back after lunch. Toddler (and Daddy) thumbs up!
  • Lovely place, with indoor and outdoor stuff, so good whatever the weather. Probably more suited to slightly younger kids, mine are 2 and 4 and they both loved it. You can ride the trains as much as you want and the indoor model trains are very good. Soft play area is quite small, but they also have Brio, a sandpit and ball pit in the carriage play areas too. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area.
  • This is a truly brilliant day out. There's loads to do and see. We went as two adults with a two year old and all of us had fun. The model railways are brilliant and there are little steps you can carry with you so the children can see. The indoor play carriages are fun with toy trains, a sandpit and a ball pool. There's a larger indoor play area too but we didn't look in there. The two train rides are brilliant. The mini golf is only OK and in my opinion the 70p charge per player was a bit much, I know that sounds silly as it isn't much money but you pay enough to get in and the 'course' doesn't really warrant an additional charge. The model village is amazing and I really enjoyed the little gnome town. The facilities are good. The food is really good and the staff are lovely. All in all a fab day out
  • Fantastic train-themed attraction which is especially suited for children 6 and under. The scale of this place is perfect for small children with lots to do. The majority of rides are included in the entry price (unlimited trips on the train for example) with a few which require a coin. I am really surprised at some of the other nagative reviews on value. £8 entry for an adult doesn't buy very much these days and if people are expecting theme park scale and variety then they should expect to pay anything from 2x to 5x the price of this place. Some of the rides may be coin-operated but I haven't been asked for as little as 20p for an attraction since the late 90s so nothing to complain about! I thought it was perfect for train-mad little ones and all the better for being charming and a little eccentric. There is still plenty to fill at least a half-day as long as the children you are taking are not too old. Hope to go back!
  • The best day out in a while really good and a lot to do.
