  • A good sized canoe lake where many families go crabbing. You can hire a pedalo swan or duck - great fun and a good work out for the legs. The man hiring the swans was a nice chap and very helpful. The...  more »
  • large play area for the kids of all ages, café on the side and toilets not too far away, with the beach just across the road what more could you want  more »
  • Set in a nice area offering paddle boats, food outlets, plenty of grassed area and seating. Good for those who enjoy remote control model boats. Close to the seashore and bus stops.  more »

  • This place is quite historic. At the museum you can see the history of it. It still has the potential to be a lovely place to go but sadly some people just don't put their rubbish in the bins or take it home and this has resulted in the beautiful swans swimming in rubbish! In the canoe lake cafe I didn't receive great service. It was almost like the lady found it a chore that she had a customer. Maybe a one off but I won't be going there again. Greens cafe is nicer but quite expensive. I found that the cafe at the model village was the best. Nice snacks for a day out, very reasonably priced and lovely people. 🙂 There is a fabulous play area for kids and mini golf is enjoyable. I feel the pedal boats and other water activities, when they are available, are a little over priced. Saying all this....I do still enjoy a visit.
  • Love it here, beautiful. Only downside is it is not looked after as people.leave their rubbish everywhere. pity
  • From visiting granny in the 70s to now little has changed, boats, model boats, ducks and ice cream. Perfect for the slightest sniff of sunshine with little kids
  • Lovely Rose Gardens. 2 cafes. Model village. Large play park. Lake needed clearing of pond weed though
  • Late season visit. Quiet... not much open at time I was there.
