We were here on a lovely sunny day in April and the view was stunning. This attraction now has a children's play area which keeps them entertained and a very good cafe restaurant serving excellent food

Two car parks both cost £2. Dogs can’t go on all the walks and have to be kept on a lead at all times due to the wild life. Cafe also did take away. Walks not as long as I expected.

Evening Roland When we visited we did see craft on the lake but best check that you can with the boating club ( situated next to the lake)

Sorry no you can only walk your dogs from the car park outside the cafe to the 2nd car park then it's a small bridge ove a stream which is the limit for dogs. Humans can walk further but could not as we had a dog.
