Nice walks. Nice and flat so easy to walk a long distance. Also nice that you can have dogs off lead on the massive front lawn of the house. Only gripe is that despite it advertising itself as very dog friendly there weren't any dog water bowls positioned round site , the addition of water bowls would make it spot... More

Always walking around Upton Park. They do sometimes have events on but my wife and I like taking out little one for a walk around the park. Just nice to be outside in a nice environment.

Standard fare, clean, neat and tidy. Could maybe do with some more hot food options but I would go back again.

This is a very good place to take the familt for a cheap country park walk and picnic. Owned by Poole council and a wedding venue in the house. You can walk in the gardens and on lots of paths most of which are buggy friendly. Toilets could do with being a bit cleaner. The gardens are OK but need... More

A really good park with lovely gardens ! This park is divided into different areas with some tree lined paths to walk through. Plants and flowers and lovely tea room.

Lovely country estate, great for families and walkers, pretty estuary paths and gardens, worth a visit on a sunny day - take a picnic and your walking boots and of course the dog.

Love it here! Beautiful gardens to explore & lovely walks through the forest & marshlands which take you on a boardwalk that the children love! There is a small play trail, keeps the children entertained, nothing like Moors Valley though! Another highlight is the water fountains that the children can play in in a hot day, gets rather busy though!... More

Took my little 5 year old boy here today. Free parking with a voluntary donation of £2. Clean facilities and nice place to have a walk round and picnic. The walled garden is great with a water fountain for the kids. There is an activity area by the cafe where kids can paint a money box or a picture, costs... More

Lots to do for the family. We enjoyed a tour in one of the little golf buggies to get our bearings on arrival. The walks looked amazing and for the energetic you could walk or cycle all the way back to Poole. We enjoyed a lovely picnic in the walled garden and watched lots of children enjoying the splash fountain,which... More
