We visited this country park to do the off road Segways and it was fantastic. Fully recommend this and the cafe offers a range of snacks and drinks with a lovely view of the walled garden. James at Dorset Segways was excellent and helped our son enjoy it as the favourite bit from his holidays!

We had a fantastic time. There were four in our party and none of us had ever been on a Segway before. At first we thought we would not be able to stay on them, but with a few practice laps we were confident. James, our trainer was very good. He gave us very clear instructions and stayed with us...

beautiful park, lovely walks and fabulous café and great toilets. Views of Poole Harbour and its wildlife. Bike trails and playgrounds. Parking can be difficult if you arrive later in the day on school holidays.

Upton House and its park id a great location for a meeting as well as a long walk. You could be miles from civilisation. Well done to Austen Layard, Peter Coles and Ian Andrews for their confidence and vision all those years ago.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon with family. The park is free entry with a suggested donation of £2 - Excellant value. There is ample parking and toilet facilities too. There is a beautiful walled garden which has a large grassed area within it- ideal for picnicing and there is a water fountain that operates in the summer that gives the... More

Very surprised at what this place had to offer. We enjoyed a walk around the walled garden with is lovely flowers then found the walks down to the estuary and the cycle paths. Wished we had found it on our first day in the area not the last. We will definitely return next time we are here.
