On our holiday we found this attraction and thought that our two children would enjoy it, the little one loves trains and I knew he would be really excited. We checked that it was on, and they had posted on their Facebook page saying that it was going to be on, so we didn't call, we just went. We arrived to it closed, nobody to tell us, just other disappointed families having to try and warn the arriving families before they have unloaded their children. We had already unloaded ours before finding out, and had to put some very upset children back in the car. The following day they said they were on, and I asked if they were sure, not wanting another wasted holiday day, (after my son having heart surgery at the end of last year, and my husband having cancer at the beginning of this year, our time together is very precious) only to be publicly berated by the volunteers and regulars for thinking that firstly, maybe they should consider not posting to say that they are on, before they know that they are. And suggesting that they could possibly put up a sign, so that disappointed children can be managed. I did consider deleting my post on the Facebook page just to stop the rude/nasty comments, but then thought that I'm not going to be bullied into deleting it. I would not recommend this attraction, and I thoroughly recommend that they learn to respect peoples time, as you never know how long somebody has left!

Found this brilliant place on trip advisor. We stayed at Tewitfield marina and we decided to pack a picnic and set off for a walk along the canal to this place. Great for the kids and had picnic on the grass. There’s a van that sells burgers and donuts and coffee. Simple little place and the kids loved it. Definitely recommend this place for a visit.

Excellent place to spend an hour with the kids at the weekend. Train rides are free - just a donation is asked for.

A great day out. A large picnic area and a few benches available too. The ride is fabulous, two rounds and great fun for both kids and grown ups. Go there if the weather is good.

What a great place to spend a couple of hrs and excellent value for money, open Sunday's fun for all the family, even the tea van is excellent with real donuts made in front of you and at a great price on all it's menu. Definitely go again.
