disappointing service
Feb 2021
Love walking around the grounds, however, the cafe isn't very eco friendly. My sister and I brought our own reusable cups which didn't fit in the machine so understandably they had to use something else instead. Yet when my sister looked she saw the lady using a different disposable cup for each drink (both were hot chocolates) completely defeating the object of reducing waste in the first place. Upon suggestion that they use a crockery cups in future for situations like this to reduce waste (something I think a country park should be keen on doing) she was ignored by the lady serving her.

Nice winter walk out
Dec 2020 • Couples
Nice winter walk out around rising sun country park, lot's of nice animals to see, great donkeys and wee horse's.
If your lucky you might catch falcons on display I'm sure you can check time's.
Good boots are a must as it is a bit muddy, but great to get out, you might even see the stag.
Take some food for swans and duck's.
Enjoy your walk

Warm welcome and scrummy scones! What's not to like???
Dec 2020
Lovely Liz and colleagues have been as warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful as ever during the last few difficult months. The outlook from the venue is a glorious panorama, whatever the weather, the scones are scrummy, and it's lovely to be welcomed and recognised when a regular customer.

Great places to wander around
Nov 2020
There are lots of paths to wander round in this country park, which are clearly shown on the maps of the site. Good for wildlife - if you are very lucky you might spot deer.
Cafe and toilets, small play area.

Cafe no hot food or tables inside
Oct 2020 • Solo
The council have stopped doing hot food at the cafe. You can get a takeaway hot drink and an excellent scone. The walk around was spoilt by many noisy people, having loud conversations, shouting at their phones, cyclists hurtling past two nearly colliding and as for the person who left a bag of dog mess on a bench... The stag has no antlers currently either sadly. Wildlife not anywhere to be seen in this busy noisy place.

Took the family and the children for a day out. Lovely in the summer with lots to do for the kids. Recommend you take drinks and snacks though.

Country park walks
Sep 2019 • Couples
First time we have visited this lovely place. situated not far from the A19. signposted from the main road. it's free to park and free to enter. There are several walks all well signposted from the red walk which was about an hour. the green walk and the blue walk were both about 30 to 40 minutes long, the heritage walk was about 2 hours long. paths were well maintained. we spotted deer in the field as well as horses. ideal for cyclists, walkers, dog walkers. There are Hides in the Swallow Pond to look out across the pond with ducks and swans. There is also a children's playground, a cafe and a visitors centre with toilet facilities. plenty of picnic tables. well worth a visit.

Nature lovers dream
Sep 2019 • Friends
I regularly visit the park for various reasons. Sometimes just passing through whilst jogging.
The visitors’ centre is a great starting point to get an idea of the geographical layout and any recent sightings for the twitchers and nature spotters. Also they do a great cuppa and food.
If you have then is definitely bring binoculars as there are so many birds and different animals you can see wild.
For fitness folks, Park Run is held here every Saturday.
There is a kids play area for the little ones if they ( or the adults) need the distraction.

Well worth a visit.
