Lovely woodlands to stroll through. Easy to find, well signposted. £1 to park in an honesty box. Perfect place to walk and work up an appetite for a local pub lunch!! Active/gym equipment along the way, enjoyed by adults and children alike!! Little gem.

Lovely place to take our children for a walk, well maintained and cheap to park. Shame some people dont take their rubbish home or put it in the bins! We visit this park often and enjoy choosing the different paths to take each time.

This is quiet park - great for a walk with the dog. Took my teenage son and friends and they enjoyed it. About an hour and half going around it. Nothing except walks, a small picnic area with 4 or 5 benches and about 5...More
