Lovely little walk around on mother's day. As with most parks there was a £3 parking charge which was a little disappointing as we only spent 40 or so minutes there. Only managed to walk part of the way round before the paths got far...More

Not suitable for cycling, only walking and then only if it is dry. Over the winter or any wet period there are parts which are impassable. Best suited to walking (dogs or otherwise) or fishing. There is a café though I must confess I missed...More
