Couple of hours or all day.

Lovely for a walk, play area and a cup of tea! or lovely lunch, jacket potatoes are great. Lots of organized things for the children to do in the holidays.

So popped up to Brandon country park for a walk with one of our dogs and to be honest as the other half wanted some cake. Disappointing that a country park has no where to sit under cover for those with dogs. I understand they don't want dogs in the cafe but not pleasant sitting in the drizzle. So I... More

The park has always been a family favourite, for a woodland stroll or a country walk its also been a good place to cycle with the grandchildren. Top this off with a hot chocolate and a pastry in the visitor centre and it makes a great way to spend some quality time with the family.

Beautiful country park and forest for visiting all year round. It's our favorite for longer walks too and the cafe is great with good coffee and delicious home made cakes.

Excellent country park. Would visit again. Good for dog walking. Looking forward to going back. Not sure what more to say. If you are looking for a quiet afternoon to finish a good book i would highly recommend this.

A fantastic place to wander through, with a lot to see. There are some wonderful varieties of trees, mushrooms etc and some great walks. The tearoom is pricey, but sells some good things. The coffee wasn't that great though.

Staying not too far away near Bury St Edmunds, we thought we would vary our daily diet of rural walks with a visit to a country park, and liked what we read in a leaflet about Brandon Country Park. It was easy for find, with good facilities and with clearly way-marked walks; the one we chose was exactly as described,... More

It is perfect for a quick lunch. However I feel the bread they use is cheap and let's them down. I also think the prices for what they are offering is rather expensive.

Signs everywhere to say dogs on leads, we didn't even have a lead with us, as Izzy well behaved, very strange woods with dogs on leads.
