I have had three trips to this country park ,running round it, and cycling , can be a really pleasant day out. But at weekends on sunny day can be very busy.

A great circular walk, or cycle, with a crossing between the lakes about 2/3s of the way around. Loads to see and do with the water sports centre and boating lake plus a few playgrounds to keep the kid occupied. A great place to meet in groups and have a BBQ for the day as the parking is right on... More

Used to come here all the time when i was younger recently went and it still has much variety in things to do and is a great family friendly spot. Must visit if local and if visiting the area. Great.

Been coming for years, they have a cable ski section with food hut, many different water activities available at the main building, and the lake is plenty big enough to have a walk/run/bike around! Will always come here and would definitely recommend to anyone!
