  • The are trees in abundance,steep hills and a lake,a fantastic place to walk while keeping fit.Toilets available and also a place to eat or drink,highly recommended. 
  • Great country park, had a nice walk with the grandchildren but occasion was spoilt by the dirty unhygienic cafe. The outside table area has never been swept, weeks of accumulated litter, dirt and dead...  more »

  • Our third visit to Rushmere Country Park since moving to the area recently. Lovely walks although it would be better if there were signs back to the visitor centre on the trails as we didn't pick up a map! The views from the cafe are great, just sat there watching the birds at the feeders and we could see the Herons on the nest. Always nice to see so many families with children enjoying the outdoors. There are picnic tables alongside the car parks. Parking cost £2:00 for all day long - very good value.
  • Reasonable parking charges, lots of space to roam and the kids loved the goblin doors and tree climbing. Usual food in the café and lots of portals and Pokestops for the techno kids.
  • Great place to walk the dog, the boating lake is a very peaceful place. Oh and the ice creams in the cafe are to die for! 🍦
  • Awesome family location and to make your own fun partially wheel chair accessible. Although £2 to exit car park but worth it :-)
  • A really nice country park with some great woodland walks.
