The country park is popular with locals and visitors. My family and I always enjoy a good walk or bisicle ride to the park also enjoying a cup of tea and cake. However, navigating the dog poo is concerning.

Lovely place to walk, calm, peaceful, fantastic views. Early October, not at all busy. We spotted seal swimming quite close to the rocks. Wished we had brought a picnic with us so could stay longer.

Lovely place to visit, pleasant to sit and relax, or wander round the area enjoying the view. The lake can be fished and you may see some of the big carp swimming in the lilies
