A beautiful place to visit in all seasons - well maintained while keeping its rustic charm. Good walks around lake and through fields by river. Lovely cafe with good service and great food. Only downside is that dogs not allowed inside, even in winter when most people there are dog walkers!

Excellent path all the way round giving good views of the lake to spot tufted ducks, nesting cormorants and herons amongs others. Yet to visit the nature reserve part as some of the paths looked very wet. Will do so in the summer. Is also a cafe with home cooked bacon butties etc and cakes! Takes less than an hour... More

This is a great place to go alone, as a couple, in a family and with anyone of any age. The parklands are extensive with a choice of strolling by the lake, past the trees or taking in a lovely, clever play area. The café is good and offers a good range at acceptable prices. The car park is large... More

We love this park and visit very often. Being retired we probably use it as younger people use their gym but it's much more interesting. We never tire of it and due to the weather, the changing seasons and how many herons we can spot, it's always different. A very positive addition to our lives.

Lovely food but it isn't cheap for a café. Gorgeous setting but it can be a struggle to get a seat. Will come back again.
