A fantastic outdoor space with plenty of room for children or dogs to run around. We walk our little dog here and it’s one of his favourite outdoor spaces, be sure to get there early though as the carpark gets full quickly!

Great place to come for a walk and enjoy the scenery. Open spaces, a lake and plenty of good paths to walk on.

Lovely lunch at the cafe. Big portions and low prices in a spacious light room. Great walks around this stunning park. We saw a woodpecker at the bird hide

What a lovely place spoiled by the state of the paths. My husband and I visited last Sunday afternoon and wished we had not bothered. Without exaggerating the paths were ankle deep in mud. We had our little dog with us we kept him on...More

This place is tight on my doorstep and it is another great place for walking. You can make the walk as long or as short as you like. Great for dog walking and feeding the ducks
