We love Coate as our little girl can ride her bike in a safe environment. We had an amazing coffee from the gentleman in the coffee shop. The selection of cakes & food was a great surprise. It all looked yummy :)

Had a really nice cycle with the family - wife, 6 & 3yr old. Nice views, flat, good paths for cycling and just the right size to get around and visit the excellent play area. Thoroughly enjoyable.
