Went here on a misty damp day but had a lovely walk through the grounds. Easy parking and a great cafe with good food, friendly staff and good value for money.

We decided that despite the freezing temperatures to do 'the long walk ' around the outer perimeter of the house. This means parking in the car park on the left as soon as you enter the park. The best part is knowing your dog is safe off the lead. We have a German Shepherd who is not interested in any... More

They have been doing extensive work here to open up more areas for walking. The paths are well maintained, there are fields, woodlands and the boardwalks by the water - beautiful place to walk.

I took my 2 year old for a walk one evening, absolutely loved it. Lots of woodland to cover, stunning views. There is a café and toilets, worth a visit.

We have been visiting the park for many years and it just gets better and better. The open spaces are ideal for dog walking and for children to explore, the cafes provide excellent food and drink and there is always something different to discover. There are formal gardens as well as woodland areas and bird watching hides so suitable for... More
