Walked from Lakeside along part of the Coombe Park route following an Easter story trail. Beautiful area even in the drizzle today. Paths well maintained, although a few muddy spots but that's to be expected. Loved the Jubilee Sundial.

Lovely spot for picnic and walking. Ideal for journey break from trip to Cornwall. Also the Lake can be used for fresh water swim but I believe this has to be arranged with certain authorities. Visited before 2017
