“100% enjoyment (despite the midges)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

What could be better, brilliant sunshine and a lovely gentle walk on flat paths round a very peaceful lake - about a mile and a half in total. Visitor centre had a good selection of sandwiches, cakes and hot snacks. We are a couple of senior citizens and made the mistake of ordering a round of delicious sandwichs EACH. Frankly they were Desperate Dan size and had we known, we would have ordered a round to share between us ! But nevertheless we managed to eat them but could not then find room for one of the equally delicious cakes. They also offer a takeway service. The park has numerous picnic tables and benches spread all round the lake. The only critisim would be the swarms of flying insects but we were assured that they were very unusual. Do go and hope for good weather for there's not much weather protection.
