Large and with plenty of facilities. The staff caring for the nesting birds were friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Hope they are back next year!

Great walk with the dog. Lots of shade.
They've actually marked different walks you can do and there's a couple that are dog friendly.
There's also toilets there and lots of free parking. Great place for a picnic
They also have horses there too.

I walked here recently with my wife and a friend and really enjoyed the scenery and well laid out pathways. Well worth a visit if you have an hour or two for a walk.

It's a decent size with loads of parking. Lots of different trails so you can stick to the tarmac path or go 'off-road and find your own walk. A bit steep in places if you go off the paths so be warned. Great for dogs as loads of room to run around. There are a couple of swings set up in the woods too which are fun for kids but give them a test first in case they have rotted!

Snelsmore changes over the year, from wet and boggy , to dusty undergrowth. But it's always nice to wander around the various paths
