Very good for a walk around, and an excellent play area suitable for any age. Large car park - so not a problem parking.

It was a lovely sunny day so we came again to walk round the lakes. The bird hides were popular and the cafe was full. It was another good cuppa and muffin afterwards. We love coming here

Took a break with my wife way back from busy life. Lovely tea break sitting on the hanging terrace in front of a quite lake.

Adore this place. Suitable for all weather's, provided the correct attire is worn! Cafe is limited but adequate and the indoor play area is only suited to very small children. However, the walls are endless and the outdoor play areas are fantastic.

Beautiful, peaceful and loads to see. Interesting flora and fauna. Birds galore, munchjack, rabbits and water all round. If that isn't enough, there is a huge adventure playground to explore and cafe and toilets on site. You will need to pay with cash to park!

I love this place and live close by.however I think that the parking should be free and people should be encouraged to donate and spend to support the upkeep.
