Darcy & My Day Out To Puxton Park | Review

Now I know I said day out here however we were only here about 3 hours so more if a morning out. On a grey old Monday we decided we weren't going to let the weather beat us and we were going to have a little adventure to Puxton Park in Somerset. It isn't too far from where we live only about 40 mins away, so the perfect distance. We had never actually been here before but I had heard good things about it especially for little children. It's been voted the No.1 attraction in Somerset so I did think it's gotta be pretty good!
We arrived around 10.30am, it wasn't too busy which I was quite glad about, there's nothing worse than a crazy busy place like this. It cost me £7.90 to get in as Darcy was free being under 2, which I didn't think was too bad at all. The price does increase in the summer period which is understandable.
The only thing I would say is if you're bring a child over to the price rises to 8.90 it's more than an adult as the park is essentially for them however I can't help but think this is very steep!
As soon as we arrived we went straight to soft play, as you can see in the pictures Darcy absolutely loved it in there. As I said before, it was quiet today which I can imagine if you went in here on a busy day it would chaos, as all soft plays are. Darcy only went in the little peoples area but I know she wanted to explore the over 4's area. 
After this we decided to go and explore the other bits of the park and take a little walk, there is certainly plenty to do here and we would of stayed longer had it been slightly warmer, I'd definitely say it is an all weather park though. We unfortunely didn't explore everything and everywhere in the park as some of the stuff is for warmer weather, we did go along to the animal barn and they have some lovely animals and they all look very well looked after. We were lucky enough to see the baby lambs and they were being fed at the time, super cute! After cooing over all the cute animals we came out at the right time as the park train was arriving so we jumped on and had a ride which Darcy loved! The adventure playgrounds looked really good fun too.
After walking round the park a couple of times and seeing what it had to offer we finished off back in the soft play for a little while longer and then took a bite to eat in the Meadows Restaurant which was really nice, Darcy had a kids lunchbox, which one thing I'd say is there could be healthier options as I felt like it was all junk food.

Overall though we had a lovely morning out and would defintely go again. Perfect for children under 5 I'd say!
Have you ever been to Puxton Park? What did you think?
Thanks for reading and enjoy the pictures
