I really like the cafe, in every season; it’s great to sit outside in the summer and cosy inside in colder weather. The food is good and you can linger for ages over a coffee. The park is pretty and is popular with families.

The grounds are beautiful, ranging from woods to run around in if you have the energy, a couple of trees that you can climb and a stretch of lawn that you can relax or sunbathe on. Been coming here for years both alone and with...More

Although the woods are a little more busier than usual because of the school holidays, you can always find a quiet spot to stop and just be at peace with nature. I do recommend wearing sensible shoes if climbing the stairs as they can be...More
