First visit today, I was looking for somewhere different but local to visit. Took us about 45 minutes to travel there, easy journey. It was cold and windy today, but lots of opportunity for walking, biking, horse riding going on, some water sports but limited due to the weather. Very impressed by the space, will definitely return with my Grandchildren... More

The surfaces in the play area need renewing, the grass was a bog and the wood bark missing from around the play equipment, where it is needed to provide a soft surface. The cafe is OK but pretty basic.... More

This was the first time we visited the Park. We found the place to be perfect for a long walk, the shortest route being about 3 1/2 miles of quite flat paths. One end of the lake is for water skiing, next to that sailing boats, there is also a mini railway, craft shop and Cafe with pretty good fare.... More
