At the start of 2019 thousands of Dorset parents took part in voting for their favourite businesses in a number of categories which included Best Day Out, Best Soft Play and Best Children's Entertainer.

Below are this years winners and we are thrilled for each and every one of them.  If you happen to visit a venue or use one of their services then please do give them a great review online and help their business grow.

There’s so much to do at multi-award winning Moors Valley Country Park and Forest.  Explore waymarked footpaths and cycle routes and take a trip on the narrow-gauge steam train.  Children love the adventure play areas and the ‘Play Trail’ with its huge wooden play structures, including the exciting Hawk House and the new Enchanted Woods. 

Discover beautifully carved wooden Gruffalo sculptures, one for each lovable character from the popular children’s story and join Zog on his forest adventure trail.

Try out Go Ape, the UK’s number one Forest Adventure.  Picnic by the beautiful lake or visit Seasons Restaurant for fresh, locally sourced food and specialty coffees.

Farmer Palmer’s is the Diamond of Dorset for families with children aged 0-8 years!  Award winning, family run and specifically designed with little ones in mind!  The entire Farmer Palmer’s Client Experience is created for you and your young children, who can sometimes get stifled in larger attractions. 

They understand the needs of parents and have created a fun, safe and entertaining environment with acres of adventure for you to explore together!

The team are fully focused on delivering you the highest levels of service and your little VIPS will LOVE the hands-on animal demonstrations.  They offer free parking, great facilities, a restaurant serving a range of refreshments and home cooked meals and a fully stocked gift shop too.  A top quality day out and great value too!
