I'm afraid that the cafe at Etherow Country Park has out-priced me. I cannot afford their newly refurbished interior prices. So I now take my custom to the Garden Centre there, which, I find, is more reasonable and the menu is more to my taste....More

Gorgeous place to go out for a walk, either as a couple or for families. Buying Bird/duck food fairly cheap and money goes towards the welfare of all the wildlife.

We are regular visitors to Etherow Country Park. My first visit was 9 years ago when I finished working. Today we had a pleasant walk up to Keg Pool and around the lake followed by an excellent chip butty in the cafe.
