Lovely huge park with so much to do, lake, go ape, animal park, maze, children's rides, play park, restaurant, cafe, nature walks. Parking charges apply £1 and hour or £5 all day and gets very busy on nice days.

try the golf course overflow car park. Drive past main carpark and it's on your right. easy access in and out.
