  • Great piece of countryside on the doorstep. Children's playground, visitor centre and small petting farm which is run on donations, so you'll need spare change to enter. But otherwise great for a walk and picnic.
  • Love the country park, its a favourite for walkers jogger and cyclist alike. The mini farm and playground is good for family. I wish it has larger picnic areas both on the grass and bench without too close too parking. The visitor area/caffee needs improvement, it is very dated despite best efforts from staff. Staff are excellent, always helpful and work hard. Both my teenagers did volunteer and had gained very useful skills from the experience.
  • Lovely place with a nice visitors centre and cafe it hot and cold drinks plus ices and some basic food served and plenty of parking. Disabled parking and disabled aces as well
  • It's a lovely place to relax and to take the kids to the farm and play area and to stop for lunch as well or may be just a nice ice cream, or drink hot or cold after to walk round the area which is 2 miles walk round so if you want to get fit walking around here it's a good place to start, and it's even better when the sun is shining take a hour out of your day and see for your self
  • This is my local park, it's clean, the staff are helpful. There's a little cafe and urban farm with a play/picnic area. Alot of wildlife to see on the great walks around the park.
