A very well kept country park with ample of parking and plenty to do. There was sailing, jet skiing, knee boarding and canoeing happening when we visited. We walked around the main lake which we think was approximately 5km. The Stable restaurant area was a busy affair with people eating both inside and outside. A pleasant time was had.

If you have kids aged 9 upwards who like water sports then this is great for them. Good equipment, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Kayaking , kneeboarding etc -all good. Kids love it, nice coffee, snacks etc and really great if you go at an event time. Great atmosphere.
