I took my Grandson on a visit last week and we had a really good few hours exploring the park and fishery. The park is beautifully situated against huge limestone outcrops and has been extensively developed over the years. Ample car parking and very reasonable entrance fee (£3/child and the same for OAPs like me!). Everyone is issued with a bag of fish pellets (free) so that feeding the rainbow trout in their various stages of development is a great experience. You can get up close to the three alpacas in their meadow as well as inpecting goats, poultry and even bees in their own habitats. The highlight of the visit should have been the red squirrels, but they must all have been in their boxes looking after their new kittens. Great to experience the wild flower walk and the butterfly garden and then on to the source of the spring that supplies all the water for the park.
The children can even have a go at trout fishing, but this is bit pricey at £6 plus the cost of any fish caught (the fish cannot be returned to the water). So if you have a few children then it could end upas an expensive day out. There is an adventure playground which is free together with picnic areas. The cafe and shop are pretty reasonable, particularly the fresh produce on sale.
All in all, a very pleasant place to visit.
