Brilliant afternoon on the Mud Run. If your kids ( big & small) love getting messy then give this experience a whirl. The staff are friendly and helpful. The obstacle course was hilarious. Our group ranged from 6-46 years olds, we all loved it. Make sure your clothes are old. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off afterwards and a changing room so you don’t take the mud home in your car. There’s an outdoor seated area for picnics and somewhere to purchase refreshments. Definitely recommend by our group.

Assault Course is great for all ages! Two parents, 6 year old and 3 year old all had the best day! Up to our necks in mud, (our choice as we chose to sit down in the deepest pools!) it’s easy to do easier parts for the younger ones along side the tricky bits for older kids, no one felt left out or left behind. Highly recommend!

Glorious mud! I visited Dorset mud trail with a friend and our children aged 3-9 and we all loved it!! It’s super safe for the younger ones yet totally risky and exciting enough for the big kids too! We laughed the whole way round.

Amazing Family Day! We took 2 of our children and their cousin to the mud trail and we couldn't recommend highly enough! The activities were challenging however manageable, fun and exciting! The children aged 11,10 and 8 had a fabulous time and spent the majority of the time here laughing! I would recommend wearing extremely old clothes so u can just throw them away after finishing. Fab time had by all!
