There’s not many places where you can paddle in a river.You can easily spend a couple of hours and for free apart from the cost for parking, it’s clear water and great fun for the kids!

Beautiful place I was surprised it was not to busy.I assume it could be heaving on a hot sunny day with all that water to play in .Parking is so good and so cheap so you cannot complain.Worth a visit

Head up stream from the car park and you are soon in a glorious green world of moss covered trees and swift running peat-coloured water. Plenty of rocks accessible from the bank so you can soon be sitting mid-stream forgetting about the “real” world. So...More
