Away from the crowds, a good place to walk, think and take in the air. Easy parking and a little cafe too. Old boats and birds. Nice spot for a couple of relaxed hours

Kids had a great time using the swing park and had a walk around the lake. Will remember the wellies next time as very muddy when wet. The cafe had various snacks and drinks and is based next to the lake.
