Nice morning spent here. Weather murky and damp so it was wet and muddy in places but the children had fun looking at the gruffalo and the musical trail. Coffee and cake was nice (although the staff didn't seem too happy!). Toilets spotless as always.

Great family day out doing the interactive gruffalo trail and then playing on the adventure playgrounds. Parking was numberplate recognition so remember your reg plate before leaving your car. Charges reasonable.
