    I have spent a while thinking about this but I think an honest review is overdue for this place. The owners have absolutely no concept of customer service. Had to wait 45 minutes when we got there for them to turn up with the keys....More

    Hi, we would recommend Talkin Tarn Park ... it's not too far from the Tranquil Otter, and it's a nice, round, flat walk. We take our greyhound there whenever we visit the Tranquil Otter! Hope this helps!
