My partner and I decided to go for coffee and cake, and a walk in the rain to the Harrold Country Park. It's always a really nice place to visit as the homemade cakes are superb. The Park itself is a good walk with various routes to take to enjoy the most out of the lake and river. Somewhere I... More

Nice for a stroll around the lake and then end up at the cafe and try some of the lovely cakes on offer. Parking was easy even though it was a very busy day. Well laid paths for walking and plenty of wildlife to look for.

I took my Mother who was 86 for an Owl day, she loves owls. The day was well planned and organised, it included having the owls on a glove on your hand, and free flying of owls onto your glove. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful and ensured everyone did what they wanted to do as far as dealing... More

Good small park, easy to walk round, good bird watching facilities, walk near lake so Easy to see birds. Cafe expensive so best to take a picnic especially with children. No charge to enter just voluntary car park charge.

Good walk for children and with dogs. The lake has bird life, the parking is easy and if you are keen to indulge, the cafe does tea, coffee and a great selection of cakes in warm conditions. Good therefore on warm or cooler days for the family.

This is a small cafe style tea and cake restaurant with a very good selection of home made cakes. The setting is beside Harold and Odell lakes in the country park which is a great location for bird watching, walking, wearing out the small ones. This should be on any cyclists radar as previously mentioned "great cakes" are a welcome... More
