Have you been?  What did you think?

Has it got better this year?

  me & the tribe went and had a real good time,found it to be understated and not in yor face like some theme-parks.you have to be fairly able bodied to get on most of the rope-walks and slides,and theres also a couple of areas for smaller children with scaled down rope slides too.
did think the food a bit pricey though,better to take a picnic

  We visited Bewilderwood last August and thought it was a lovely place .

Our children were probably a bit too old for it at 11 and 14 but had a good time anyway .

It is a bit pricey , especially the food and would recommend taking a picnic .

Plenty to do and younger children would find it quite magical ! Just that bit different from your traditional theme park and would certainly recommend it .

  Hello Matt, welcome this link gives you an idea if you have not found it alraedy.  Unusually these days they don't mind you taking your own food and drink although their local ice creams are supposed to be rather nice Smile

  My kids love this place, but it can be a bit like marmite!

If you have active kids with nurtured imaginations, they'll love it and not want to come away!

If you have couch potatoe PS2 players who just expect the entertainment to come to them, they might be a little disappointed.

As we left, some families were having to drag their kids away, others were moaning (quite incredibly in my opinion) about how there was "nothing to do", and the latter did seem to be more of the chav ilk!!!!

As for the food, in my opinion you get what you pay for. It is all locally sourced and (i think) organic. The proper sausage rolls are the best i've ever tried. So good I bought a couple more on our way out for Ron.

It's great for big kids (adults) too. I had a whale of a time!

It's not expensive in my book. If you stay all day it's good value, but it does get extremely busy in peak season.

Healthy happy family fun I reckon.

  We Twiggles, Boggles and Crocklebogs (that's me!) can't wait to see you all at BeWILDerwood this coming season.
We have a new jungle bridge near the Broken Bridge - it makes my knees go wobbly!
And there's plenty of events going on throughout the season.
Look forward to seeing you there

  Top tip for anyone wanting to visit BeWILDerwood - we're generally quieter at weekends, so come along and see us then!

(weekends are change over days for local holidaymakers so they tend to visit us on Tuesdays & Wednesdays).

Toodle-oo!

  Minty's my niece. She's my sister's (Millicent) daughter. Yes, she is having a birthday in May and I'm so excited! Details of her birthday party are on the BeWILDerwood website.[url=http://www.bewilderwood.co.uk/events-bewilderwood.aspx]
We'll be encouraging people to come in fancy dress and there'll be lots of party games (all at no extra cost to the normal entry price).
You're more than welcome to send Minty a birthday card - I'm sure she'd be delighted!

I have my tiara at the ready!

  Hi All

Went to Bewilderwood a few weeks ago with 4 children (4,4,6,and 7) and 3 big children, much improved on last year although will say to take a picnic as food is really expensive, not really very imaginative and you have to queue for ages.  Apart from that we had a great time, much more for the 4 year olds to do this time as there are toddlerwood areas all over now, they were braver than us on the bigger slides! Although we did have a laugh on the zip wires!  Would definitely recommend as a good day out as long as the weather is dry!


animal    -- May-23-2009 @ 3:00 PM
  hi all it sounds great cant wait to go on my hols at end of june it will be my first time there toddler world sounds great for my 20 month old niece  Exterminate

  We are going on holiday next week and we are planning on visiting Bewilderwood.  Only think is that I have broke my foot yesterday and now have a pot and crutches to contend with.  Am I going to be able to get around Bewilderwood okay, or is it best that my family visit without me?




andyfish    -- Jul-3-2009 @ 6:22 PM
  Sorry to hear about your foot Bobbie, I damaged my ankle yesterday so i know how you feel
You might struggle at Bewilderwood as there are some decent climbs and steep slides,also it depends how you are geting there, we usually moor our boat at Horning and walk up which takes about 20 mins but would take me an hour now with this brace on me foot
But if you can get there its well worth it for the kids
cheers
Andy

  Quick question... boy with broken arm ... worth going or not?

Fell overboard? Let's just wait here, the tide will bring him back in.


bobbie    -- Jul-12-2009 @ 9:40 AM
  Thanks Andyfish for your reply.  I didn't see it before we went.  I actually ended up going, but we had borrowed a wheelchair for me.  It was a bit hard going in the wheelchair as it's gravel and not smooth and they nearly let me go going down the hills. lol.

Well worth a visit, even though our visit ended up with a trip to A&E as my daughter fell and banged her head on one of the walkways. She's okay and was just a precaution.  We'd go again, and even my 50 year old Mom enjoyed her self going down the slides.

I'm not sure I would bother going if your son has a broken arm, as it's all climbing type of stuff and wouldn't be easy for him to do.

  Somewhere near the Swan or New Inn in Horning Village.
Walk up to the main road, turn towards Wroxham and its
about a 10/15 min walk. Enjoy!!


gra325i    -- Jul-20-2010 @ 11:57 AM
  Thats great, thanks for your help Marshman

Maffman100    -- Jul-20-2010 @ 12:11 PM
  Marshman do you know if the roads have paths? I have driven past but cannot remember seeing paths!

If you dont fancy the walk you can moor at Womack Water and get the bus from Ludham Village (or so Nigel said on another Thread!-If you search for it Nigel knew the bus number).

Matt


Marshman    -- Jul-20-2010 @ 3:54 PM
  Strangely its Horning Village that is without the path
but once you get to the main road there is a good
footpath all the way from the junction to Bewilderwood.


liveinnorfolk    -- Aug-21-2010 @ 10:02 AM
  The mrs and I have been several times to Bewilderwood. We found the family ticket to be good value and last year more play things were added for toddlers, which helped a great deal. I love the place and really enjoy the creativity and imagination. I really hope to get some decent photos on our next visit  and put them up on my blog/forum, to show off what a great place it is.

  Hi folks, well its a good place for the kids to have a good time running around and wearing them out, but we found the food not of the best quality and quite expensive for what you got , so we would recommend you take a packed lunch along.
