Fantastic cafe. Walked here from the severn valley railway to see what was on offer and was treated to a perfect jacket potato with salad, hot drink and a teacake. The selection of cakes was great, could have eaten all of them ! I had the cafe nearly to myself yet the food was amazing. Friendly helpful staff. Will certainly visit again if I am ever in the area.

Amazing cafe, lovely food, well done :)

The bridge over the river and riverside walks were great too. Did come across a shooting party, shooting their way through hundreds of ducks as mentioned in a previous post. Maybe that aspect not great for children but it was quite a long walk away from the visitor centre ( towards Hampton loade ) so most children would never see it.

My first visit to this park. Large car park, a café and toilets and a visitor centre.
Nice walks around what is an abandoned coal mining area with the black spoil visible in places. Information boards detailing the areas history.
A large area with a footbridge over the river. Walks are mostly paved although steep in places. Riverside walks are not paved and will be muddy in the winter.
A couple of small lakes with bird hides but nothing showing on our visit, possibly due to low water level.
Overall nice place for a stroll and enjoy nature.

Arranged to meet here on a very hot day. The cafe chalet served lovely cold drinks sandwiches and very good lemon cake. However it was disappointing to see that the only shade for eating was under a covered area with plastic roof and it was like a greenhouse under there. We were forced to eat our nice food in the car with the A/C running.

Someone needs to re-think this. Why could they not open the cafe indoor area as they used to do before COVID. I can see how running it this way made sense under lock down but now with relaxed rules surely the indoor area could be opened again. Please look at this or at the very least provide some fans to keep the outdoor area a bit cooler. This is such a beautiful place to visit so I do not want to knock it. Just improve the eating facilities.

I visited here for the first time recently with my wife and two kids and we all loved the place.
There is a decent sized car park, although it was over-flowing on the day we went. You have to pay for the car park which was £1.20 for up to 2 hours and a bit more for longer.
By the car park there is a little cafe and toilets as well as a huge play area, whilst on the other side of the car park is another little play area.
There are several walking routes varying in length and also suitability, depending on whether you want a woodland walk, path walks etc. As we had our push chair and my son was on his bike, we decided to stick to the path and followed it down to the riverside, where there is a large bridge to take you across to continue you walk.
We are itching to get back to check out more of the site.
There are some nice views along the way and plenty of great places to stop for a picnic or packed lunch.

Can't rate it highly enough.

We went for a lovely walk along the Severn at the start of Autumn just as the trees were beginning to change colour. The scenery is always brilliant but at this time of year it is very special.

Excellent park with two play areas and a sandpit for kids. The car park is not very big so there's a wait sometimes.
Nice views of the river from the bridge and a nice walk around.

Nice for a walk or a picnic, unfortunately there are no streams to play in.
Suitable to visit on a dry day, don't bother coming if its wet.

We visited Severn Valley Country Park on a Wednesday for a quick walk and a picnic in the sun, there are plenty of benches spaced out for you to enjoy the sun and more importantly stay safe.

What a beautiful place, recently visited the park. The parking is reasonably priced and if your disabled ♿ you park free with your blue badge. Lovely views of the river severn from the bridge linking alveley and highly together.
