We loved the Tower House & all the gardens, it is so peaceful there. We loved the old tree in the main garden.

Lovely river walk & picnic area. Lots of seats to just watch the boats & punts on the water. Beautiful gardens.

This is such a quaint little garden set along a river. The flowers were in full bloom and there were so many people taking advantage of its lovely facilities. Well worth a visit.

If the weather's good, take a punt up the River Stour with the company by the Westgate Tower, they're excellent. The 65 mins ride takes you up into the beautiful unspoilt reaches of the river, with willows and dragonflies and lots of wildlife. The gardens are lovely. If you cross over the river there is an amazing children's adventure playground.... More

Not a very big park but a charming one. At the end is some equipment for those who enjoy to exercise.
