  • Great day out for the whole family. Plenty of space for the children to run around and burn some energy.  more »
  • Great for a short or long walk, short or long run or just to have a go on the fantastic play area with an array of play items  more »
  • I lead the yorkshire walking group and not a year goes by that we dont visit this lovely estate. The wooden sculptures need a bit of an upgrade but apart from that there are very few negatives. Ice cr...  more »

  • Fantastic place. Plenty of parking around st ives. Kids loved the park, we all enjoyed the walk in the woodland and round lake. Huge thumps up from us. We go as often as we can . We take a picnic but there is a lovely little cottage cafe which serves hot and cold food and prices are good too.
  • Very pleasant tearoom and estate: perhaps not always easy if self conscious or for some accessibility needs. Tea room a little small inside though dog friendly, ramped access and has two outside areas. The access road is narrowly constrained in places with very little pavement, although it would be possible to drop-off into the spacious yard. It's now years since I used the accessible toilet in the tearoom as a parent carer, but it was a high toilet so not so helpful for us. The play area is great, especially the bridge and wobbly path and musical equipment and different types of swing and the zip wire, though not always maintained: however otherwise lacks some accessibility, slides and other climbing structures are hard to use, water moving Archimedes screw feature hasn't worked for years. Occasional update and maintenance but parts can look a bit shabby which isn't necessarily bad, I like a bit of worn in character. The throne in the grassy picnic area opposite the play area has been a favourite. Opportunity for wild exploitation in the play area with the willow dragon and around the pond and elsewhere in and around the whole estate. Landscape constantly under management, some part I believe now under a disease management protocol with felling and some other measures but not seen this myself to describe it. Secrets may include fox dens, charcoal burning, caves. And more.
  • Such a beautiful, peaceful place to visit. Ideal for families, as there's a lovely woodland to explore, a duck pond to feed the ducks, and also a cafe/picnic area to refuel. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Fantastic to stop after a l9ng walk and take in the atmosphere. Dog and child friendly. Staff are excellent. Sometimes a queue but soon dealt with.
  • Great place for family and for dog walking. Loads of paths and makes the moor accessible if want to walk further afield. Play area good for both kids and adults. Cafe close by. The lake has jetties to feed birds although very few were about when we visited.
