This is SO worth a visit. A well pathed walk through such beautiful countryside, then through a wood, to take you nicely back to the Courtroom tea rooms! Had hot sausage rolls & tea in extremely nice surroundings.

Beautiful, quiet park to spend a few hours. Plants are available for sale, a cafe for a cup of tea, and public toilets (unusual now for Poole). Only downside; they charge now for parking, so will have to take my dog elsewhere. Such a shame....More
