REVIEW *****
"We went to Knockhatch at the weekend with my 8 year old Granddaughter. What a gem, we had a great time. Had lunch at the Bear's Den which was extremely reasonable and good too. I had great fun on the Water Slide and as I was celebrating my 71st birthday I proved you are never too old to have a go. Also enjoyed the Quadapiller Ride. Great value for money."
