“Good interesting walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

It is our local country park, and is very good for country park. There are interesting constructions such as 'woodhenge' and some good views. Good activity park and there are days in which there is an outside BBQ - need to check for this. As you walk around there are traces of its industrial past - you would not think this now. For kids there is a good adventure centre.

One thing that niggles me is the parking charge - a flat £2 irrespective of time - no problem if you are staying a half day, but I like to pop in for a 15 minute brisk walk round the pond. If you want to avoid the charge park in a little place near in Woodlands Lane near the junction with Brewers Road and enter via the public footpath which leads to the fishing lake.

Also wear good shoes unless it is very dry - it can be boggy in places.

“A great summer day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We're very lucky to live near to the park and can easily cycle there with the family. However, cycling is slightly frowned obviously around the sometimes busy footpath.

Strongly recommend one of their own freshly made pizza's cooked in their own pizza oven!

“What a great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is a lovely place to visit, we were on a photography visit with some friends and were lucky with the weather too. It's very well set out with ponds and woods, all well maintained with lots of paths, some are very muddy and uneven though. It's a haven for dog walkers, there is a dog pool especially for all those who like a splash about!!the cafe has a limited menu but what they serve is very good indeed. We had a great day and we will be back.
