It is suitable for disabled people as wheelchairs can make it all round on the made up paths, but for children still... More

Really good place to go with friends and family. Welcoming Cafe which offers a good variety of fresh high quality foods. I would definitely recommend this as a day trip for a family picnic (good play parks for the kids) or a good place for couples to meander around and stop off at the Cafe for a tea and cake... More

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
