  • It was pleasant to visit, and accessible, but we were confused by the interpretation boards near the viewing platform. They list four types of deer, but how many types are in this enclosure? And how many enclosures are there? And are there paths connecting them? We felt like this information could have been clearer, as we certainly missed it if it was provided! That said, it was great to see the fallow deer that we saw.
  • I have been visiting this place since I was a little girl and always walk away with fond memories of spotting deer and walking through the lovely wood. I love the clearly marked pathways too, great for kids as well.
  • Really lovely place for a visit. There is a great information centre with 3 walks ranging in length. Picnic area, toilets, and a great Ice Cream van. A must visit if you are in The National Park.
  • Lovely place to visit, we took our two young children, who had lots of fun! Lots of parking, which is free, but you can make a donation. Toilets onsite, which were clean. The sanctuary was lovely, we saw deer and a stag. It was very accessible with a buggy, only one place were it was a little difficult, on the way back. Overall we all had a great time and would recommend it, for families, couples and individuals.
  • Lovely place to visit in the forest. Sometimes there aren't many deer out and about to see. Designated BBQ areas and a nice field for some ball games. Ice cream van seems to be here every day of the year! Plenty of shade if it's a really hot day. Couple of nice walks to stretch your legs.
