  • A fab place for walking and cycling. Pretty flat throughout. A good place for a family day out on a suuny day.
  • One of my go to places. Lovely views and lots of wildlife. Walks of differing surfaces.
  • Beautiful place, something for everyone, from families to walkers. You can rent bikes and go for longer explorations. Loads to see and learn. Activities like boat rides, pond dipping, den building. It's wonderful! Bring the bug spray, I've been eaten alive!
  • Such a great place to visit with kids. Lovely cafe too and some great cycle routes, or boat trips if you fancy taking to the water.
