Stover is a lovely place,full of walkways,nature and views...however the parking is expensive considering you could walk around the lake in 20 minutes. There are a number of better walks in the area with free parking,but like I’ve said the place itself is lovely.

An ideal spot for dog walking we use it all the time plenty of parking in the dedicated car parks and on the road at the back of the site.

A lovely park/nature reserve surrounding a lake. Relaxing walks through woodland including an 'elevated tree canopy deck/walkway' . Well worth a visit.

Sorry, there is no formal play area. There are various things to do like feeding the ducks, walking along the aerial walkway, watching wildlife from the bird hide and playing woods.

Best to ask at the information office first. A couple of days ago there were notices up requesting that people did NOT take any ivy or holly - but given it was Christmas they could have been in danger of being denuded!
