Visited today with husband and elderly mother in law. Staff really accommodated mother in law's poor appetite with small and tempting portions of welsh faggot and veg whilst we enjoyed some Bara Brith and Chelsea bun. Stunning views and interesting gift shop. Would recommend.

Is this a good point to start walks from? Ideally we would like a 2 to 3hour route that takes in the best views/sights in the park. Any suggestions welcomed.
