Our second trip was to Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World, this was a 2-hour drive and we decided that we would spend a night nearby. We hired the same driver who took us to Legoland (he has kids and is really patient with bored kids in the car!), and set off early. The drive was fun, passing by farms the kids enjoyed seeing horses and cows, playing “I Spy”, and just gazing out at green pastures.
We booked our stay at the Mortimer Arms Inn, which is a really cozy family owned inn, a 2 floor building, which was really charming, you feel like you are at home. The staff were amazing, really friendly with kids, and their food was so good, you could tell it’s homemade. Upon inquiry, we found out that all their food is sourced from local farmers, and the family runs the inn, including the kitchen.
We checked in, changed as it was colder than central London, and headed to Peppa Pig Park. On our 10 minute walk from the inn you pass through a dreamy forest, the kids got so excited seeing many kinds of berries growing on bushes, as well as the occasional squirrel making its way around.
Peppa Pig Park is located in Paultons Park, when you go in you find the park has 3 zones, one is Peppa Pig World, the other is a zoo, and the third is the Paulton’s Theme Park. The first thing I noticed is how clean the park is, as well as the well-kept rides in it. My kids went crazy over everything as they can recognize the rides from their reading books and show, I actually didn’t mind letting my older son roam around on his own.
Everything was organized, there were area’s for free play that had padded flooring, then a smaller play area inside for toddlers that was gated. In that same area there was a water playground where the kids could experience the “muddy puddles” that Peppa and George usually jump in. The Peppa Pig characters made appearances frequently in a specific area where you could go and take pictures in a well-organized way (no pushing or people cutting in line).
There were rides as well as display houses, you could go inside Peppa’s home, or the school class, and in most places you could take your picture with Peppa and George:
Once it started to rain we moved inside into the free-play area that had the rocket theme, it was spacious and there was a parents sitting area that also had a cafeteria. The food served was good (so was their coffee) but just like the other parks, it was overpriced.
The park opens from 10 am – 5:30 pm, and everyday we left we had tantrums from the kids! We took a 2-day family pass for £219, and it was worth every penny. The merchandise was of very good quality and you would literally want to buy everything! If you don’t mind the 2-hour drive (you wont feel the time fly), I would definitely recommend you visit Peppa Pig Park, but stay over for a night. Need more info about it? Just send me an email and I would gladly provide you with it J
