Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about our park yesterday. We often receive many comments on the lack of litter bins; this is not an oversight, rather than a positive decision was made almost 10 years ago to remove...More

We usually visit when it is too wet underfoot to walk in the fields. Great views of the reservoir and there are frequent regattas. Small cafe and toilet facilities> Some good water birds, including plentiful curlew and the occasional bar-headed goose.

Sorry I don't understand, why shouldn't disabled people pay for parking like everyone else? I doubt the cafe give disabled people free drinks/snacks either, and I bet the petrol station charged them for fuel too.
