Great walk

We took our Dogs for a walk around the lakes. It was longer than we expected but we enjoyed the day.

This is a lovely park to visit, day or evening. It’s a good walk without being too long. Very pretty countryside and a great play area for the kids. Cafe is small and reasonable but can be worth taking a flask of coffee from home....More

The park itself was lovely but spoiled by the extortionate prices in the cafe for poor standard food - over £7 for a pre-made cling-film wrapped panini which was barely warmed through!!! Take a picnic and avoid the cafe completely would be my recommendation!

Very good park for walking/running, just over 3 miles all the way round, plenty of ducks/swans has cafe and play area for children.

This is very popular with dog walkers and have to say fully understand why. It is lovely place to visit. Good foot paths and excellent place to get in touch with nature. Car parking is £3 for four hours so not excessive. The walk is...More

We enjoyed a lovely walk around the lake and although the car park was full it was still possible to find some quite areas within the park. Lots of families there, but there is plenty of spaces for picnics or bbq. Make sure you take...More
