Great place, ruined by £4 parking. This isn’t the middle of town. You used to be able to park on the road without paying (before going through the gate). Now you get a penalty notice. If I want to walk my dog for a week,...More

My friend & I took our young boys here today to do crabbing for the 1st time. Lovely place with lots to do but easy to get lost as no clear signs guiding us in the right direction. Would recommend & would come again.
