We had a great day with three dogs . Wonderful selection in spotless cafe & delighted that my gluten free son was catered for . Our grandson loved the play areas & we were pleased to see some designed for older children. Some more site maps , especially on the family cycle track would be helpful

What a great place. My daughter took me today with her two children and between us three little dogs. The planning and layout is amazing, children walked for a long time without knowing it as all the dogs came back shattered followed by two young children and then me the old girl. So nice to visit somewhere when all members of family have a good time and able to let dogs have a good time too. The cafe was very good too with friendly efficient staff and the food was priced just right for the quality it all was especially the hot coffee on such a grey day. Will return soon to do the GoApe!

First visit to Alice Holt today and had an excellent day. If you are looking for a great day outside with the kids that has plenty to keep them active and entertained then this place has it. Great facilities and a family day out that only cost 8 was a bargain. They have a cafe or plenty of places for a picnic.

Such a lovely place, very well maintained and lots of things to do. Our children ( 5 and 3) enjoyed the forest and the trails, we haven't managed to see it all in one day, it is that big! Fresh air and fun. Perfect for families, dog owners, adventurers (go ape) and cyclist enthusiasts. Will definitely come back and recommend to everyone.

Would be helpful if the car park charges page stated the charge as well as explaining the ticketless system. We are off somewhere else now instead!

I am sorry you could not find the correct information prior to your visit on our website. The car parking charges can be found on the left hand side of the Alice Holt home page. But we will look at adding this information to the page in question.

Our boys (5, 4 & 3) love this place. We have seen tadpoles aplenty, sailed to sea and walked the plank in the play park, hunted Gruffalos, poked sticks into a creek, been woodpeckers and log pile creatures and forest explorers deep into the trees and enjoyed an evening 'listening walk' and we still feel as if there is more for us to see and do. Brilliant place, beautifully managed.
