We recently visited with our two young children (6yrs and 3yrs) and their grandparents. It was a wet and drizzly day but the walk around the lake was still lovely and a good length for our little ones. The playground next to the visitors centre was good fun and has high quality equipment. We all had a yummy lunch in... More

What a beautiful visitors centre and park. The views from the Cafe are spectacular. Watching the red kites feeding is magical. The food in the cafe is all local produce. I sampled a spicy lamb sausage in a crusty roll which tasted divine. I would highly recommend a visit if you are near. The play areas are fun for all... More

A lovely place to visit without costing a fortune. Free entry- just a £3 car park fee. Great for young children- 2 small wooden play areas and lovely walk round the lake. Kite know when 3pm feeding time- 2pm GMT- 100 birds swooping around- wonderful to see! Good cafe and small shop

We were looking for a place to visit that did not cost extortionate entrance fees and found this wonderful attraction. Only needed to pay £3 for parking. As well as wonderful trails and walks the Red Kites are fed every afternoon by the lake; they fly in from miles and is a spectacular sight, a must see if you are... More
