With over 100 acres of natural gardens, woods and lakes, this is a great place to spend a day. There is the option of woodland walks, boat trips, and a welcoming cafe. Highly recommened.

Yes, dogs on leads are very welcome and water/drinking bowls are provided. There is a small charge for dogs (25p) to cover the cost of a poop scoop.
