The beautiful lakes and wooded setting is lovely for walking, cycling or just enjoying the view. Ducks and geese vie for food which can be purchased at the cafe. The courtyard is a sunny spot to gather for a snack or picnic, also shelter if raining in the barn area. There is a simple display of the history of the... More

Lovely place disgusted they charge Charity walkers £3.50 when 3000 people turn up to raze money for Alzheimer's. But had a lovely day.

Rother Valley is great for bike riding, barbecuing, windsurfing or just a walk for fresh air. The area's great for sunny days for outside activities and the people there are quite friendly which creates a nice atmosphere.

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.
