Had a wonderful visit to coffee shop. Staff very attentive & pleasant especially with the children. Playground closed due to instillation of a new adventure playground. Looking forward to another visit when opened.

Lovely part of the world to wonder for an hour. There is a cafe but we didn't go in. I think you can purchase a fishing license there. I'd say there is only carp and breem in the pond.

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.
