Top attraction in the area by miles. Go visit and you'll understand why. The walks are amazing, there are bikes for hire. A lovely Càfe, with friendly staff at both places. Lakes, sculptures, wildlife. Picnic areas, something for everyone.

Spent a day here in mid July with my wife our 2 children and their grandmother. We hired bicycles and had a great time (such is the nature of cycling in summer weather). Unfortunately I could not ignore some very minor negative aspects. But first...More
