“Great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Worth a visit - park in Benton Asdas car park. Great walk - quiet and peaceful. Great place to walk a dog, see wildlife and take children - any age. Pop into the cafe for a cuppa or snack.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic free day out we take a picnic, play area and tree climbing keeps my son happy along with lovely walks down the nature trails passing ponds where you can feed the ducks and the horses field. Can easily spend a few hours there. Brilliant x
