Nice place to visit. Have ur Euros ready for the barrier on the way out not the way in. Small exit Fee supports upkeep. Lovely wildlife. All kinds of birds and swans etc. Mature trees.

I love bringing my kids over as it is a beautiful place. Unfortunately it is always empty and it feels abandoned! I really wish they could add more "life" to the pond. I would definitely come back more times then!

Hi Geraldine. I didn't notice any but that doesn't mean that they are not in the pond. We were more focused on swans and other birds over there.
