No prices on ice cream van. Charged £2 each for iced lolly. Cheap brand complete rip off. £2.40 per go on bouncy castle, cars etc soon adds up if you have a few children. All in all expensive day out !!

Sorry to hear your experience was slightly dashed by the dogs - but I hope you will change your mind and return. Come along to our Superhero Picnic on 31 July in the Craft Village, which is a free event for families.
