Nice quite place, lovely for lonely or couple or group or pet walks. Nice gift shops, enough of seated areas and ease to access. Great for a long walk. Good for family fun time but can utilize the space a bit more

The park is perfect for young children and occasional older children the walk is amazing for dog walkers or just a stroll. The visitor centre is very educational and fun for the whole family.

Nice place, lovely walk to go round but feel the whole thing could be utilised a little more. Some nice gift shops, more seated areas. It is a bit of a non event but great for a long walk.
