I came for a walk around and found the park to be very clean and tidy. The toilets were also very clean. I would recommend this place for family days out.

This a perfect day out. A flat circular walk of a decent length depending if you go round all the lakes. Lots to do for all the family, playground, watersports and loads of birds to feed so take a big bag of seed. The courtyard a very nice and the people in the café could not have been more welcoming...

Great clean well kept park with lots for children to do. Lovely ponds to feed ducks. Greats walks and bike rides. Also great for dog walking just ensure if you have a dog and it messes to pick up after it as there's lots of people/children that visit. Great place for picnics too.

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. However, it lacks services all around the place and every time I go there seems to be animal droppings around, which isn't dealt... More

Rother Valley is on my doorstep and I've seen it grow over the years since it opened. If you want to walk, cycle or simply laze on the grass RV is a great place to relax. Parking is reasonable but if you don't want to pay and don't mind the 20 min walk use the entrance on the far side... More

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.
