There are a lot of trees cut down for a nature reserve, which is always sad to see. Trail signs missing in a few places but overall a very nice place for a walk. The lake is lovely. Enjoyed it.

Crisp Autumn day, clear skies, a walk down the paths, through the colourful leaves to a picturesque lake - absolutely beautiful. Perfect for couples, families,dog walking, picnics or just catching a moment of calm to yourself in the midst of nature. What a gorgeous location.
