Free parking available in certain areas outside the park. Look on the os map as can be quite awkward to find. I prefer to drive in and pay to get in the park. Water sports animals cafe etc. The cycling routes are okay but cycling around the park can be rather frustrating at times. Walkers seem to not care for... More

What a delightful surprise. Chance to rent bikes, karts and water sports in the summer. Trails ranging from 3 miles. Perfect for all the family and dogs too all year. Really impressed. Parking is expensive but park at the golf club for £2.50 with a free coffee and walk the mile into the park!

Great for dog walk and dog swimming. Lots to do here. We go a lot cos we live locally- but we never get bored. We've rented bikes, joined in with dog agility. Had picnics, rented canoes and kayaks. Even for the inactive theres lots to watch! Enjoy!

Decided to go to RVCP cycling today, bad idea! We looked the routes on their web site and decided it sounded great. When we arrived, we thought we'd have a bite to eat before our ride, so we visited the cafe. After queuing 10 mins our order was taken, then had to re queue for about 45 mins for our... More

great place to take your dogs for a lovely walk around the lakes, great for small children too as they get to play on the swings etc or ride the little train. Nice cafe where you can get the basics, free toilets and even water for the dogs. There's a range of water sports you can try and bike hire... More

My dogs love it here. You can go on different walks each time. It costs £5.00 to get through the main entrance.
