12/52: Photos from our Saturday at Woodlands adventure park

On Saturday I surprised the children with a trip to Woodlands which is in Dartmouth, Devon. It is an adventure park with rides, a zoo-farm and lots of various play areas. I used to come here all the time as a kid so I was really excited to bring the boys here for the first time.

The park is still in its winter season so most of the rides were unfortunately closed but we still managed to have lots of fun in the outdoor/indoor play parks and the farm. The children's favourite place was the wooden huts along the woodland walk. They loved running around inside them, pretending to live in each one.

My favourite part of Woodlands has always been the Zoo-farm where we probably spent most of our time on Saturday. The children really enjoyed seeing the new born lambs especially and kept disappearing to go and play with them.

Charlotte the shire horse. The boys thought she was a unicorn. 

Within the farm is a Dinosaur tractor ride which the boys absolutely loved. It was like being in Jurassic park and featured all the different kinds of dinosaurs. I loved that each one had a little sign post describing what each one was so the boys didn't ask me any questions. I really need to brush up on my dinosaur knowledge. 



We ended the day with the indoor soft play area just to pass the time while we waited for our bus home.   I really don't know where the boys get their energy from. I was exhausted by this time from all the walking we had done but yet they managed to run up and down the stairs to the top of this slide at least twenty times. 

We a had a great time at Woodlands on Saturday and we are really looking forward to returning when the rest of the park is open.

    1. Thank you. They are becoming quite good in front of the camera but only because I promised them ice-cream. :)

  7. We went there last year & absolutely loved the place! We camped for two nights & you get free entry to the park. There is so much for everyone to enjoy & it appeals to all ages. I have to say it's one of the only places I've been too where you see toddlers through to teenagers smiling...imagine that, smiling teenagers? We loved the toboggan run & the tractors up at the dinosaur park are great, we went round about 5 times :)

  12. Woodlands is a brilliant day out for the family, we used to have to have season passes when we lived in Devon and the boys loved it. They've definitely added some new areas since we last went though. The boys look like they're really enjoying their first time, I bet they can't wait until you go back to see all of the rides as well. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
