Sophie Cattell: “Absolutely fantastic! The staff were all so friendly, especially the young ladies face painting. There was so much to do and see.”

Arlene Meazza: “Had a perfect afternoon went with sister and a 10 month old and 4year old. We met a friend and her granddaughter there and the children had a magical time. We all had lunch which was delicious and good value. Children got to cuddle fluffy animals and hold a snake and tortoise. All the staff were friendly and helpful and really seemed to enjoy their jobs. Highly recommend and we will definitely be returning. Thanks for a great day!”

Lesley Smith: “Today we had a fabulous day at Whilton Locks Garden Village. Our 2 year old granddaughter and her little friend enjoyed face painting, visiting Santa in his grotto, and they got to hold some of the animals in the cuddles session. Lunch in the restaurant was very tasty and very reasonably priced. Got to say that Santa’s grotto is magical and extremely good value for your money. Well done to all the staff who worked so hard to make our visit so enjoyable. Would highly recommend it and well worth a try.”
