  • This is a lovely place with a lot of things waiting to be explored. But in order to enjoy all of them, it would be better to stay and spend at least three days if you are with children. I spends two days and it seems not enough. The admission fee for normal car parking inside is 5 GBP and there is also a camping area besides the parking for motor home stay overnight that is a little expensive. First of all, it has a maze garden which is very fun with children. It took us a hour to find the way out finally. A walled garden is near the conference centre which took us almost one hour. The bicycle trails are go through the hills with multiple routes choice around the lake. You can either bring your own bicycles or hire it at the entrance. The children love this place and we also love it. A picnic is a must. Besides, there is a small caffe near the entrance. The firewood heating feels very warm but the food is just OK.
  • Beautiful park, good mtb runs, just be careful few tight turns right after jumps, The park itself is great, i seen red kite, buzzard, sparrow hawk and a red squirrel so i was well pleased. Highly recommend.
  • Excellent mountain bike trails with a good mix of uphill and downhill broken into plenty of sections. A nice black off the back of the hill back down to the red. The red is 14k approx long (depending on how many bushes you go into). Also a nice blue/green route around the lake for the the kids to do while they are waiting. Check with Mountain Biking NI before you go to make sure the trails are open as they often shut off parts for forestry works, but are quick to open them after. Two small cafes in the park which are grand for a nice cuppa after.
  • Great place to ride, lots of different trails for all levels and a pump track to warm up on.
  • Great for cycling / walking holidays. Campsite is a bit small
