My son who is 5 absolutely loved it and held every animal and his sister who’s almost 2 joined in with quite a lot too.  Also the tea beforehand was delicious. Definitely look into this for my sons 6th birthday in September.” Emily Wright, Facebook

“I’ve been before for shopping , today I came with my boys to meet santa in his grotto and I was really impressed ! The grotto is beautiful !!!!! I love the sleigh area making more photo opportunities and happy children . “Santa” didn’t rush us and made it very special ! I loved the snowman bouncy castle and the ice rink what a lovely way to spend a family day out on a normally stressful run up to Christmas !

We also went into the cafe there was a minor problem with the food and although we were ok with a replacement item they came over with Christmas cupcakes to say sorry for the problem although not expected this was lovely and great customer service and lovely home cooked /baked food !” Allanah Swain, Facebook
