Very nice park to have a walk along the river bank with all the trees, very peaceful. Playpark area and small zoo for the children, so lots to keep them occupied. Tea room seemed nice with sitting in or sitting out in picnic benches in courtyard, but I only had a coffee. Car park within the park which is not very large but there is another car parking area at front to left of gatehouse which is much larger and then to walk little way to the park.

Park , zoo and nature trails lovely and definitely worth a visit . The courtyard cafe , well where do I begin . Lovely outdoor seating area . Placed order and given a number ticket to collect order. My number was called and the young man said "oh be careful the box is very hot" wow no kidding I couldn't even hold it . Was chips n cheese . These were inedible as was deep fried frozen chips , cheap rubber orange cheese microwaved on High for a considerable time , the chips were a solid lump , not even a fork would catch them . Expensive disgusting food , a picnic is required .

It's a great country park, I'm not great at steps or stairs and I can walk slowly around and totally not use steps once. They have considered everyone's needs from very fit to disabled. It's kept in wonderful condition and I recommend you try the courtyard cafe for a drink or even a toastie, lots on offer there. Friendly staff from the cafe to the wardens.

Love the zoo, it's so cheap to get in and the enclosures are all really good - the animals are very well cared for. The surrounding walks in the country park are great also, so many different routes to go for a woodland walk. Single adult, no kids! Still love the zoo and walks after years of going on multiple occasions.

Great day out with 19 month old granddaughter. She loved the animals and the parks although it was a bit too cold the day went to spend much time outside. The dog loved the walk she had while Sophie and I went to the cafe. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the selection of cakes was lovely. The only thing that let it down was the disabled/baby changing toilet in the cafe. It wasn't as clean as it could've been
