A great family attraction with an easy circular walk and lots of bird life. The large car park is now a pay and display but not overpriced. Cafe on site if refreshments needed plus well kept toilets

Lovely place. Beautiful in all seasons. Great for walking dogs. Lots of friendly people. Good for visiting with elderly people as it is quite flat with benches placed every once in a while. Cafe great. Wonderful rowing club. A little gem.

Owners do let dogs off lead but if your dog likes to explore there is lots of space and s/he would be able to wander off if s/he had a mind to.
