Really enjoyable and a fantastic new swing Park for the kids

Weather was wonderful. Had a fantastic day of walking. A lovely cup of tea in their tea room. Kids had a brilliant day and our dog came home exhausted. Brilliant family day out

With two parks to amuse the kids it is a nice place to come on a sunny afternoon. We always manage to make our way to the ice cream shop.
