I love this place. It’s so fun. It has a decent size playground which is extremely fun. It also has a bird hide which you see rare birds. If you are luck you could see a red kite.

A National Trust property with great views and lovely woodland walks. You may see wildlife roaming the woods or you may just want a place where the children can play on the swings. This is definitely a great place to visit!

Lots to see for both grown ups and children. There is a large play/adventure area to keep the children entertained for an afternoon. Lots of places of interest and walks as well as a couple of lovely little cafes

Dogs welcome in grounds on leads; assistance dogs only allowed inside chapel and cafe's. Dogs are allowed in the library at the stables, which can be used to eat your cream scone and tea if it's rainy!
