We went here to this hotel through Paulton's breaks on the same deal over Easter weekend and paid £138 for 3 of us, my little one being under 1metre. Hotel was fine, breakfast nice. Says on the website the kids get a goody bag and sweets upon arrival. She got a little goody bag (basically just colouring in sheets and crayons) but when I asked about the sweets they said they don't give them out 'for health and safety' so the website is wrong apparently.

I've been to both but preferred Thomas land, we went in April and my 4yo daughter has asked everyday since when we are going back! we've been to Peppa 3 times and she never mentions it!!
We stayed in the Drayton manor hotel, 1 night, 3 x tickets and breakfast £120

We've been to Thomas the last 2 years and are trying Peppa this year....it seems to be one of those placese that never appears on Tesco days out, never has a bogof offer on etc, unless anyone knows of a deal it's the only place I'm going this summer that I've not got "on the cheap"

My eldest was 3 when we went for her birthday and she loved it. I think if we went now she wouldnt enjoy it so much. She is now 4.5 years. We are collecting the sun vouchers atm to go to legoland. Ive never seen any bogof for pp world either

My little girl loved peppa pig world and so did we, she was under 1m so we only paid £120 for the holiday inn express just after Easter. Would definitely recommend for the right price. Haven't been to thomas land though

Thomas land is amazing and so is the rest of drayton manor well worth going if you can get two for one or use your tesco clubcard

We've been to both Peppa Pig World and Thomas - both are fab. Our oldest was 3 last year when we took him (we went for 2 days). He absolutely loved it....and we only did Peppa, not Paulton's Park, although I've heard that it is also fab. One tip though, if you can, go on a week day xx

PS - when/if you do go, watch the adults when you're there (including yourself)......we're all singing/humming along to the music blasting out of the loud speakers.....Peppa Songs all day!

Went to Peppa Pig world last August. Fab place but queues were huge from the minute the gates opened. Not good with an impatient toddler would definitely recommend but not in the school hols!!

Terrible theme park. Queues go on forever. Lucky if you get on 5 or 6 rides in a day. And so expensive! They dont generally do deals for entry so good price if you have a toddler that MUST go...

I've loved paultons since I was a kid and my 2 loved it too. They don't have any offers on, ever (apart from tatty teddies day) but as I'm local we used to have passes and go all the time. I miss it now mine are grown up, peppa pig land is great for little ones but it has made it incredibly busy, long queues in summer, try and go during term time early

Is Mr Bull there? He's my fave.

We haven't been to Thomas land but have been to Legoland. If your LO is a fan of PP I would recommend it, if not there's probably other places you would enjoy. Get there for when/before park opens. They start letting people in from 9.30 (at Easter they did anyway) but you can only get so far before you reach one of two entrances which are gated off. So you basically only have access to the toilets, shop and can see some flamingos. We waited there both days from 9.30 til 10 when they opened the gate and went straight to PP section, which most others did too. Went straight for Miss Rabbit's helicopter ride got straight on any by the time we got off the ride was probably about 15/20 min long. Busiest rides seem to be that one, balloon ride and windy castle. The others do get busy but not quite as much. The thing is with all the rides in PP the queues don't look long so you think you'll only be stood there for like 10 minutes but they are slow rides and don't let many people on at a time it's more like 30 minutes or more. Do as any of the 'big' rides first then the smaller ones and then the playground/houses when it gets too busy to queue.

We were very lucky and didn't find the queues a problem at all. We did however go in May - a Sunday and a Monday. The Monday was by far the better day as there were hardly any queues. The longest we had to wait was 15 minutes and normally it was no more than 5. I was told by one of the staff however that it was crazy in the summer and especially the holiday season.

What really annoys me about these places is that they will just flog as many tickets as they can regardless of how long you have to wait and assume you will just come back the next day to make sure you get on all the rides. They should have a limit on how many they sell.

Each to their own but we found his a very nice park. Very clean and tidy, and very well looked after. All of the rides are well maintained and there are some very good rides there. The park on the whole I'd say was aimed at the younger generation, and by that I mean up to about the age of 16, some of the bigger rides are still fairly tame in comparison to the big hitters like Alton Towers etc. Edge, Cobra and Magma are the good ones of course.

We went on a school weekday in October and the park was all but empty, it was eerily quiet to be honest but on the flip side there were no queues so you could just stay on the rides if you wanted!

The Peppa Pig section did get a bit busier though as you'd expect and by lunchtime expect lots of tears where the overwhelmed little ones start to meltdown. We found the afternoon's in the PP section much quieter, presumably where a lot of afternoon naps where being had elsewhere.A friend of ours has been since and said the queues were colossal so do pick your moments carefully.

For the PP section, if your a fan of The Simpsons then think Krusty World and you won't be far wrong. The design team have done a brilliant job of making the whole experience magical and enjoyable for all and the rides aren't just glorified fairground rides like I've experienced at other parks, they have geniunely gone out of their way to make each ride that little bit more individual here. The windy Castle was the stand out favourite for me though.

Another thing to note, the teacups just out the PP section are the free wheel variety, this pleases me very much.

All in all, well worth the visit and to those asking is is better than Thomas land? In my opinion, yes without a doubt although understandably the bigger rides at Drayton Manor are more adult based so it does depend on what you want from your day. If it's purely for the kids then Paultons all the way.

Don't think we will go there as it's 6 hour drive but nicklodeon land is good , looking forward to the new cbeebies land soon
