  • A bit artificial, but well looked after. Make sure to go on one of the amazing walks. I love the Historic Trail!
  • Great place to go, nice walks, plenty of wild life, lots of quiet little side walks, its just 3 quid for the car park for all day, great place to walk your dog, you have to keep them out of the water though as lots of ducks. Ice cream van there too both days we visited, what more could you need.
  • Lots of good paths. Busy with dog walkers and kids. Bring change for the parking machine.
  • Great for dog walks, taking the kids and forgetting your troubles. Has a picnic area in a wooded area, walks of varying sizes, information hut and more. Disability scooters can be hired to handle the rough paths so accessible to nearly all.
  • Absolutely stunning lake and wonderful wildlife walk an area of special scientific interest and an are of outstanding natural beauty, definitely worth a visit long woodland walks, paths are safe for families and pushchairs, wheelchair access , toilets plenty of places for picnics lots of benches around the walks, or go further up the Templar way ( walk ) or just relax and enjoy the wildlife and beautiful surroundings, you will not be disappointed, and all for the price of a car park ticket !
