Absolutely disgusted! Today we have visited the park with my 6 year old daughter who wears glasses. She can't not see without her glasses. She wanted to go on the water zorbs. We went to pay and the person behind the counter told me she couldn't go on with her glasses. I said well she can't see without them his... More

Rother Valley is a fabulous park with two main lakes, with well maintained paths around them for walking and cycling, and lovely landscaped grounds around them. There are good car parking facilities, but also several free pedestrian access points. There is a small cafe area and some craft workshops, and part of one lake is dedicated to a water-skiing area,... More

Visited 23 Aug 2016, Monday fantastic weather. A great location but entrance fee now £5.00 per car, everything else high cost, so an expensive day out. Catering arrangements are abysmal, long waits, very poor quality food, everything unhealthy and with poor tasting chips. Toilets filthy. Apart from that, great site and superb train ride for the kids. Good swings for... More

A number of water-sports are available at the park and you can also hire a variety of bikes from the newly built hire shop. A lot of activities also take place her; triathlons, charity walks/runs, dog training classes so a busy park. The cafe in the courtyard area serves food and cold and hot drinks but don't be in a...

play ground areas are nice. parking is good. toilets are available but only at one end. you can hire bike and vehicles which are fun. we did a 5 k run round but saw lots of people letting their dogs poo on the path and not clear it. maybe the place needs more poo bins?

Love coming to rother valley especially on when the sun is out. Took our puppy and he loves it just as much as we do, plenty of sporting activities to do, we find hiring the bikes really enjoyable and not too expensive.

I came here with school to walk around the park there, it had good views whilst we walked/ran around it to get some exercise in the fresh air!

Good location with so much you can do. From multiple walks, jogging, cable surfing, cycling or boating. Excellent location for a family picnic. Food is available on site and is reasonably priced. Does say dogs should be on leads but the majority weren't an area that needs to be monitored by the Rangers. I'm not afraid of dogs but had... More
