Spent a few hours here wandering around and taking in all the lovely sights. The park is in great condition, beautifully tended and with so much to see. Very nice restaurant.

The park is quite large. It's very hilly with a lovely lake at the bottom. There's a children's play area and also a cafe. Overall a lovely afternoon spent. The park is very well kept

Lovely landscaped park with the added extra of an outside area devoted to the intricacies of building dry stonewalls and detailed features. Very informative.

Lovely park, plenty of green open space, nice lake with ducks and swans. Weather was pretty grim but the paths were fine. £1.50 and you can park all day which is good value. It is an uphill walk to the Hall but it’s a gentler...More
