A beautiful afternoon, a lovely walk along the river, birds singing topped off with a good coffee and delicious homemade cake. what more could you want. Will definitely return.

I have been walking in these woods for years, since just after I left school in fact, it has changed a lot since then with far more accessible than there used to be, and much better pathways. I kind of preferred it back in the day, but at least more people can enjoy it now the way it is today,... More

Lots of nature, green and beautiful waterfall. All this for only 20 pence car park for an hour! Cheap cakes and coffee too!

What a lovely place to walk and explore, we take dogs for a walk and they can have a good run, also the grandchildren run and explore nature, you can walk as far or as little as you feel up to.

I had a real shock when I visited yesterday, I was so impressed I went back today. I visited with my two young kids and my mother cos my wife was working, I was very impressed. There is a real nice waterfall and lake. There are about 7 miles of walks so you can spend the whole day here. Some... More

Better advertising is definitely needed for this beautiful park. I was surprised by how large an area it is, perfect for dog walking as we were doing, and many other visitors that were there last Sunday. I do think dog bins are needed around the park, but understand there isn't the funding for it at the moment. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

What a wonderful job the volunteers have done on this area, an amazing transformation. Now the local community have such a beautiful place to enjoy as well as visitors passing through from the M4. There are different routes you can walk or cycle, enjoy a picnic by the lake or waterfall, take a stroll up to the top of the... More

Had a lovely long walk with my husband and our dog. Didn't know this place existed. Why isn't it better advertised so that everyone can go there and enjoy it? The entrance on the main road is very untidy though, by the layby, masses of litter. Hope the car parking fee goes towards the restoration project. Had quite an adventure,... More
