We were fortunate to visit this on a beautiful sunny November day when all the autumn colours were out. The park is well maintained by the Council and a delight to walk around. It is free to park your car and free to enter. Some of the woodland walks are a bit muddy, naturally, but with good footwear you'll enjoy it all. There are tarmaced drives too, all in good condition. The hall is fascinating to look at but it appeared closed for visitors (November weekday) so we didn't try to go in. We enjoyed the cafe near the main gate too with a good selection of refreshments both hot and cold. Well worth a visit.
