I love this tiny jewel of peace and tranquillity. Especially photogenic in autumn with the multi coloured trees reflected in the waters of the tarn

A great place for all to see, have a walk or take in the views and watch the wildlife. Great forest walks with wood carvings. A lovely little café and boating hire for those daring the waters.
