Nice little cafe in the Spa Gardens, choice of cakes & they also do a well-priced Sunday lunch. Kids had ice creams! Hired clubs for a round of crazy golf outside! Nice playground just across the road.

You can park just along on Church Lane by St Wilfrids Primary free of charge or Booths (supermarket) car park for up to 3 hours (£1.40) but you do get a voucher to redeem up to £1 back if you spend £5 or more in Booths!
