Bewilderwood - Review

Last week we were holidaying in Norfolk and visited the lovely Bewilderwood.

Bewilderwood is a forest adventure park full of fairy houses, slides, swings and zip wires.

The park would suit most primary school age children.  Older children may still enjoy it with siblings as the zip wires and slippery slopes seemed to appeal to all ages.




The park is truly beautiful with so much attention to detail.  My son loved spotting the little houses & declared himself a twiggle. It is very easy to navigate the park and it is well signposted.




Highlights for us were the Skymaze, Slippery Slopes and the Swings.  My son also enjoyed some crafts in The Big Hat and we all enjoyed the little boat ride on the Scaaary Lake.




Unfortunately I had a leg injury so couldn't join in as much as I wanted but this means I can 100% confirm that the park is suitable for all.  I was worried about the uneven surfaces of a forest but it was fine with wide pathways.  It was a little hilly but perfectly manageable and I saw lots of buggies and a couple of wheelchairs and everyone was managing fine.

You can also listen to interactive storytelling which we didn't participate in but looked very engaging for the little ones.  My children as 6 and 10 and preferred all the running around and adventure.  There is also free face painting.


We ate in the park and for 5 of us it did work out expensive but you can take in picnics.  It was nice to see plenty of healthy options on the menu which was a very pleasant change from most family parks. 




I would highly recommend the park for an unusual, outdoors, back to nature family trip.  It's a shame we live so far away as I'd live to go back for The Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade which runs 14th October to 29th October.
