  • We actually enjoyed our time in ferry meadows but it has now been spoilt by the rip off parking fees. There are signs all over the place saying that you need to pay but it is not clear on how you pay....  more »
  • I recently enjoyed an excellent walk around the lake at Ferry meadows followed by a great coffee in their restaurant. Definitely a place to come if you need a good stroll.  more »

  • The park is well kept and a joy to walk around. There are different length walks to suit. A little train runs in the park during school holidays which the children will enjoy. There is also a boat excursion on the lake/river run by a very nice chap. Very knowledgeable and at a reasonable price. Well worth taking a trip. He also, very kindly, rescued a kite form the water for us.
  • This is an absolutely beautiful place BUT there is a MASSIVE BUT, please be aware of there new parking system PARK WITH EASE, I had a fine on the 21st Sept oops, but I never received my first letter stating that I had a fine and owed £25 that would of been OK and I would of paid but I did not get this, I then got a reminder on Dec 21st almost three months later saying to pay £50, appeals don`t work they answer in a robotic way, and when I asked for a reason for not receiving my first letter well I have had no reply... please pay your parking or you will get hit with a lubricous bill. This has put me off and my entire family visiting thank you PARK WITH EASE.
  • Great park. Miles to walk around. Great bespoke play parks for children. Bike hiring, water sports, cafe's, barbeques and a miniature ride on railway. Very dog friendly.
  • Clean, tidy, safe and LOTS to do for all ages. Excellent accessibility for children and less mobile visitors, fair prices at the cafe too. A wonderful day out for families and once the kids are a bit older they can do den building and walk or cycle around the lakes with parents. I have many fond memories of camping here as a child, spending countless hours at the park exploring. Even though it's a 90 minute drive from my home, I still take my family here now and again. It's a lovely place and convenient for shopping in the city afterwards.
  • Place is a-mazing. Loads to do. Peaceful. Beautiful. Lovely walks...
