We have not been here many times even though it is virtually on our doorstep. I nice easy circular route suitable for pushing around a pram. There are some smooth pathways but this does not quite extend to the whole the circular route. Well worth a trip. The entrance fee is £5

If you are ever stuck for a couple of hours to kill then visit this place. Car parking is a couple of quid but well worth it. This place is popular with young ,old and families. Take a stroll around the two lakes, in fact take your bikes and cycle around. Good for picnics, and plenty to do for the... More
