  • Really nice day out. Good cafe and pleasant places to walk. The farm is good for £1 entry and you can return as many times as you like. Lots of animals to see but you can't feed any. Many horses on the walks and parking is free. Lots of places to picnic and much more to see so will have to return again soon.
  • can get a bit boggy on one side of the path that runs along the stream, but other side is fine. Great for pond dipping & nature walks. Cafe near car park entrance and playground & farm.
  • I'm surprised every time just how big this place is. I find a new route to walk each time. One word of warning for those trying to be healthy. The little cafe has a magnet that draws you in for coffee and a sandwich...which are good enough to drag you back every time.
  • A lovely park with a good playground, the best bit is the animal sanctuary, perfect for a couple if hours of fresh air!
  • Great place for the dog to run around, with many paths being somewhat rough but just about usable by wheel chairs.
