My Bicycling passion took me to this place. Was searching on TA about parks to see. Found this place which was like 12 miles from my home. Rode on my bicycle till there. Spent there like 2 hours walking and sitting under tree. Overall good place to go.

Big Park with a lake. Very nice in summer to go there and take the sun. You can find different areas with animals horses, bull and so on. There is a train inside to visit the park and a golf club. Is really big and nice.

Great for winter walks with the children, the play area has also just been renovated and provides hours of fun for the kids. Stop off in the garden centre for something to eat.
