“Lovely walk”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We walk here regularly and have watched the site develop. Well managed woodland walks. Huge adventure playground. Pleasant exhibition hall that nearly always has something to look at and a reasonable cafe too. Worth a trip.

It is a beautiful place, very clean and family friendly with loads of things for kids to do and terrific country walks. Excellent café and visitor/educational centre. Plenty of free parking. Not sure what it would be like in bad weather.
