Loads to do in a small area

Great place to visit, the kids get involved with nearly all the activities even at an early age. Plenty of picnic tables for lunch. It's a nice small area so not to much walking required but plenty to do.

This is our favourite family day out. Lots to do with amazing, informative staff. The horse talk is not to be missed plus all the other free activites throughout the day.
