Beware of the parking. I used the telephone payment system, called the number, registered and paid the car parking. A week later I receive a parking fine of £70 (£40 if paid in 14 days). I appealed but apparently there’s no record of my call, despite me having the call log. I will not be back!

This park widely caters for wheelchair users as well as on foot visitors. Terrain wise my wheelchair was able to access many parts of the park such as the play area excellent for small children, the lake and many more! The Atma Cafe was phenomenal too. Very welcoming and kind and exceptional customer service as well🙂 Geraldine and Jasmine in particular! The park itself was peaceful and calm and really reflected the true beauty of the Kent downs too! I was very impressed with the size of the disabled toilets as you could fit 3 wheelchairs or pushchairs in however the only downfall would be that the doors were slightly heavy to open and fit somebody who would like independence, this may not be ideal. However on the whole I would definitely comeback here again!

This is an excellent area for walking and exercising your dog (if you have one). There are separate marked walks (even though you can walk where you want), one of which has well-maintained paths which are both wheelchair and pushchair friendly. The others do not have such paths and can tend to be muddy in wet weather. There are information boards giving the history of the area, benches on which you can sit and admire the views, a car park (pay and display with one price for the the whole day and where there are also clean toilets) and a very good cafe. An excellent place in which to spend some time.

Staying in Hythe, my wife and I decided to spend a couple of hours at this
beautiful country park. Seemed to be plenty of easy car parking,
and paid £1.70 for the day.
A number of various routes are suggested, dependant on how far you wish to walk.
Very pretty lake area together with grasslands and meadows.
If it has recently rained, then it would be wise to take a pair of wellies as
some of the trails can be a little muddy. It is possible to see the sea from the higher vantage points.

We called in to cook off on a very hot day. One car park machine was refusing to accept registration numbers and by the time we left engineers were working on the other so there would be no way to pay.
Pleasant walk down and around the lake.

Been here many times over several years, particularly good for children. Plenty of room to stretch their legs, explore, play park and a lovely walk around the lake. Good for picnics and a pleasant cafe for food, drink and ice creams. Small charge for car park, otherwise free entry. Look out for children's activity days.

Been going here for over 20 years now was brilliant but today the meal was awful. I had shepherd's pie with veg. The pie was all mash potatoes with nothing underneath and I had two boiled potatoes and one was clearly rotten as black on the outside and inside. Hubby had wedges which was basically a plate of lettuce leafs.

Absolutely love this place and during these difficulties the park has been Covid safe to ensure we all stay safe . Cafe and toilets are open . Car park reasonable price but on the phone no cash . Not sure if at this time you can bq . To spend all day here is fantastic and the easy bit is last adult to the car park pays for the ice creams.

There's the park itself with water, rolling fields, easy access bits, and lots of space for dogs to run about. And there's the playground, on a slope with a super long slide and natural area above for scrambling about among the trees. Something for everyone, and merits a good long visit.

Haven't tried the refreshments, and paying for parking is a downside.

More details and free family days out in Kent on my blog The Frenchie Mummy. So Google it and have a look there too! Merci!

Such a lovely place to visit with your family! The park is huge, I would definitely make it a day out with a picnic.

We loved observing the wildlife. The bamboo maze was one of our faves and the playground has a really good size too!

Great place to get some exercise and fresh air!
