  • Lovely place, watching the deer in there natural habitat, we made our own den out of old fallen tree branches, the kids loved it, and it has some lovely walks.
  • Nice place to cycle and walk. I saw some deer and squirrels. autumn turns this place into magic, I recommend a visit.
  • 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.
  • Worth visiting the visitors center to get info about walks and deer spotting. Great advice on what to see. Good picnic and bbq area. Our only complaint is that the toilets are pretty horrible. Not seats on the toilets and stink is bad.
  • Great picnic facilities, nice walk in the woods and nice Gruffalo trail for the children all with the added attraction of also being able to see the deer.
