Called in late afternoon for coffees and a comfort break, including a baby. Took the baby to the changing facility and doing them to be spotless, as were the toilets in general. A credit to the staff.

Arrived at 11.30am and ordered a coffee and scone, only to be told the scones had not yet been delivered!! Instead had coffee, which was satisfactory, and a stale piece of cake. Given the quality the special offer price of £4.95 seemed excessive. My advice...More

This is a great place for a quiet walk. Lots of people walking their dogs and children using the playground. I summer there are the famous Rose Trials which are very busy but a great day out as there musicians playing and a great atmosphere.

I've been visiting this wonderful park for many years, and each time I've come away feeling renewed. Each season brings new delights and experiences. So well cared for too. A space for everyone to enjoy. Plenty of parking space.
