  • Fantastic place. Makes a wonderful day out. The outdoor play area is brilliant; probably the best for miles and miles and the kids could spend hours playing on it. Do remember to take swimming costume/towel as there's lots of water to play with. There's a bike rental place nearby, very reasonably priced (I think an adult is £7 for 1 hour) and it's a lovely place to ride around. Parking pricing is about normal and you can pay by card; just aim to get there early as it can get crazy busy and they have closed the car park before. Highly recommended!
  • Great place for nature. River and lakeside nicely landscaped. Good to see children enjoy the fort and moat. Spoiled by rubbish on the ground. Can't understand why people are too lazy to put their rubbish and in many bins
  • Surroundings amazing. Very clean to walk round. Facilities really good. Staff very friendly
  • Love walking dogs here ... exercising but in a relaxed way whether walking or biking lovely surroundings ...places for kids to play and courses done which are informative for the whole family
  • Fantastic place for families on a fine day. Wonderful playground with water area (take a towel), obstacle course, bike hire, lovely cafe.
