  • Parking prices are pretty good, the walk around the lakes is very relaxing and there's always ducks that are happy to see you ( duck food is available at the rangers hut next to the carpark) there's almost always an ice cream van in the carpark for drinks. There's also a couple of nice areas to picnic.
  • Wonderful place to go for a wander with the family, including a poetry trail with carved wooden animals the kids love.
  • Stunning place had a lovely afternoon there admiring the wildlife and views, good parking rates for the carpark which is admirable (£1.50 )
  • A great place to walk the dogs and children
  • Scenic, flat feels like your in the middle of nowhere, car park, good value
