This place is beautiful! The walks are great and the children's play area kept our 5 year old busy for quite some time! Get out and about in the countryside and enjoy a stroll here - you won't regret it. The cafeteria served good wholesome food, freshly prepared. The toilet area was obviously cleaned regularly.

Doesn't matter what time of the year you go, this is always a delight. Great for dog walkies, nice for a bit of peace, nature, wildlife spotting. Highly recommended. We regularly go!

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!
