This is a pleasant enough park but it isn’t very large and it doesn’t take long to walk all the paths. I guess children would enjoy the play area. For what was here we thought the parking was costly and the visitors centre rather primitive!

We called here for a couple of hours walking - admission free but £3 to park. Loads of lakes to walk around and also of course walks in the surrounding woodlands. Recommended.
