  • Its less than half a mile from the M1 motorway with plenty of free parking (no height restrictions). The main gate is closed at night and the closing time will be displayed at the entrance. There is a small railway that not always open so youll have to ring up before hand to check. Theres also a cafe that ive never seen open. The toilets are open with hot water in the sinks and a dog drinking bowl outside. They also have a few toilet areas for dogs. Dogs are aloud of their leads but must be in sight of their owners. There are severial flat walks, some on board walks through the Bogs and other with gravel through trees. There's a duck pond and plenty of picnic tables.
