This is a lovely circular walk from the cafe and right back. Wellies or boots are highly recommended especially in this weather and really nice ending up at the cafe for hot chocolate, chips and ice cream.

Nice area to walk the dog around although only found one dog waste bin in the entire walk which isn't ideal.

Great place to walk with interesting information around the area. Toilets are dirty with cold water to wash your hands and a electric dryer that was almost as cold as the water.

We do allow bike riding in the park, however the paths are narrow is some areas so we ask that cyclists are careful and considerate of other users. Many thanks.
