Great place to visit at any age. So exciting for children with many play areas along the circular walk. Bikes to rent if you so wish. One of our favourite places to visit. Delicious food in the cafe.

There is a cafe that has lovely food but queues can be long and seating can be limited. There is quite a bit of seating outside too though. Lots of places to picnic as well.
