Lovely place with lovely staff. Spent a very nice day with the children, bird watching and going on nature trails. Loads of great info/spotting sheets for the children. The cafe food was good and all at a very reasonable price.

Absolutely great day out for couples and for family. Entrance fee is just £2.50 per person and parking is free. Staff are very friendly and all in all it's a very peaceful and scenic place with some great walking routes.
