“Great family day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Good park, lots of green open space, picnic areas and plenty of ducks to feed!

If you visit in the summer months, bring along BBQ things - they have plenty of built in BBQs around the picnic area.

Beautiful place to visit. The Spring & Summer months are especially nice as you can take more chance to explore the gardens, which are just stunning.

“Brooding Abbey set in super parkland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The country park is large and has much variety with a long curving lake, woodland and open spaces. The visitor centre has a slight air of Marylebone Station about it and obviously is aimed at education.
