  • their is an area where the bluebells come out and it is so pretty.....since the area around the lake has been cleaned up it is such a pleasure to walk along. Our dog loves his wooded walk.  more »
  • It is nice to go on an organised walk I have been twice but it is better to have someone to show you around and point out places and things of interest. First visit was not successful as we got lost ....  more »

  • Lovely ex Family "estate" which is now looked after by the National Trust. Miles of proper paths with superb views and scenery in general. Great place to take the kids, dog, or just to have a walk. There are two lakes within the "park" and benches to sit down on and enjoy your surroundings. There are also events on, so, worth checking their website. Would have had 5 stars if there had been a café, which I may not have noticed, but would be a nice addition if not.
  • Lovely walks to be had here with a small cafe. Everything was well maintained, however its lack of bins, even in the car park, is not ideal. There is only one bin for dog litter and no bins (as far as I could tell) for general waste. Apart from this and not finding any picnic tables, these woods are recommended. But be prepared to take your rubbish home until a bin is installed.
  • A beautiful place for a walk or to take dogs. Lovely scenery including a lake and waterfall. No play area for children but they should enjoy running around and exploring. Car park is £1 for an hour or £2 for the day so very reasonable
  • An amazing place to walk through nature. Can be muddy in places if been raining. Beautiful little cafe with public toilets and a lovely menu. a very reasonable car park 2 pound for the whole day. A fantastic place to run around with the kids and dogs
  • Lovely forest walk. The team have done great work clearing and making it more accessible.
