“Ideal for young and old alike”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Located between Swindon and Highworth near the Honda plant.

The park consists of a couple of miles of well maintained pathways that meander around a central lake through old forests. Things to see include the Folly, Giant Redwood tree, Birds and bats galore, and a rangers house converted from an old farm house which includes a discovery room for kids.

Easy walking for kids and the maintained paths make it semi easy for wheel chairs, dog walkers are welcome (please clean up after your dog) so are cyclists and their are many platforms for fishermen around the lake.

Good access to the main road, good amount of parking, no entrance fee and the Stamford House Hotel is accessible from the park, via a connecting gate, for drinks and food.

“Easy dog walk”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Pleasant place 2 go for a medium sized dog walk, usually busy during the summer, better when the tourist season has finished. Dogs can cool off at the bottom of the waterfall. Check out the bee keeping area, always interesting.

“Beautiful wooded country park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very popular with dog walkers - masses of room to walk. Plenty of room for children, paths throughout the woods. Lakes and ponds. There are lots of events run by the rangers - check out the website
