A few weekends ago we were lucky enough to be invited along to Diggerland in Devon.
I had never been before so I was looking forward to seeing what it was all about. I’m not sure who was more excited about going the kiddies or the other half! From the minute we pulled into the car park everyone seemed to go into hyper mode!
The first thing that kids wanted to do when we got there was play on the park (typical! We could of done that anywhere!) In the park there is a really tall aerial walkway with 3 big slides, a fun house, a sandpit and some real vehicles that the children can get in and play on.
From an adult perspective the park did look like it could do with a few updates and a lick of paint but the kiddies didn’t care about that and they had great fun.
After we finally coaxed them out of the park we actually got to go on some diggers!
The hoop a duck was a firm favourite with ours…
I was slightly concerned that it would be too boy orientated and that Lj would get bored but I needn’t have worried, she got stuck right in and she particulalry enjoyed driving a jeep.
There were lots of rides to go on as well as diggers.
When the rain started to come down we decided it would be a good time to have some lunch in the cafe. The menu was very simple with things like burgers, nuggets and chips. The food was good and the kiddies ate all of it which is always a bonus!
The good thing about the cafe area is that there is an indoor ball pit and bouncy castle for, if like us, you get caught out by rain. There is also a small computer arcade which kept our two entertained while we had a quiet cup of tea.
When the rain subsided we ventured outside again and had a go on some of the rides we had missed.
If you visit remember to pop into the shop before you leave to get your Diggerland certificates and check out some of the fab bits that they have for sale, like their very cool bright yellow Diggerland wellies which I now wish I had bought 🙁
All in all, we had a really lovely day at Diggerland and we’re looking forward to going back soon!
