When you come somewhere for natural beauty the last thing you want is rowdy children spoiling it for you. The grounds could be kept cleaner but maybe it would help if other people cleaned up their rubbish!

This forest is a great place for a relaxing walk especially if you have a pet. Always clean and well presented. Be careful down by the river as the Bann is a very unforgiving stretch of water. Stop enjoy and have a picnic.

Gorgeous forest walk right down to the river where you can watch boats sailing by for as long as you like. Bluebells in spring are breathtaking
