We took our grandchildren to this heritage funfair set in the middle of nowhere! They loved it (so did we) and they didn't want to leave. And these kids have been to Disneyworld, Florida twice. Well worth a trip and weather-proof.

Went to Dingles whilst on holiday in Devon. My 11 year old really wanted to go but my 14 year old didn't. However he enjoyed it...purely because of the Dodgems! I do think it's overpriced given the size of the place, and you can't really...More
