Had a nice couple of hours , very good facilities. Cafe was very busy for February day. We where there to visit the the optic shop to purchase binoculars. Very helpful staff . The only downside l don't see why you have pay for parking.

Easy to find, plenty of parking and in a lovely area. Went for a walk - the longer of the two - and this was still quite short, about half an hour all round. Would have liked to walk further but I couldn't that day. The short walks would be great with kids and I think the shorter of the... More

Can't get close to the water. Wheel chair access doesn't go beyond the car park. Cafe had turned into a chip shop takeaway with the accompanying aroma.

There were lots of children and dogs around, but this wasn't an issue for us at all. I intend to go back and have... More

Very pretty and a lovely walk but not at all wheel chair friendly as the path has large stones which block the wheels and then their is a bridge which is too narrow for a wheelchair. Walking you can see over the conservation growth but if in a wheelchair or for a child in a pushchair there is a very... More
