“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

A lovely park, well looked after and cared for. Not rammed with people. Quality hot drinks in the café, exceptionally clean toilets. Facilities included; 3 childrens play areas (one with sand diggers), lake, herb garden, camp site, visitor centre (although not open when we were there for some reason!?), café. Reasonably priced parking - the only expense. A good, cheap day out for all the family and very accessible from M1.

“Not very well thought out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

This would offer a lovely walk had it not been for all of the traffic. Walking with a young child learning to ride a bike is a nightmare as you have to stop regularly and keep an eye out for cars all the time. Play area is very nice but mainly aimed at under 5s. We personally prefer Hartold Country Park and it's free (but doesn't allow bikes at all)

“i own a caravan in the park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

the second play area needs modernising. when its busy you are scared of running a child over or dogs that are not on leads joggers who think they have the right of way. why cant they put a footpath to the right of the entrance all the way round to the second play area. passing other cars is a tight queeze when there are obstacles in the way. toilets not always cleaned when park is busy. parking of cars should be away from the bends of the road and further back on the grass

Ideal setting for camping. Great facilities on site. Fishing lakes as well as plenty of natural park land, planned walks and play parks for kids. Within walking distance to village of olney with local shops & pubs.
