A very large park worth exploring. Something new at every turn. If you like the countryside then you will love this park. Wildlife in abundance and exercise in the fresh air, what's not to love? And finish it off with a nice cup of tea...More

Delicious tea for four - beautifully presented in well - tended gardens. Lovely woodland walks down to the shore line of Poole Harbour with numerous land and coastal birdlife to see. Binoculars would be recommended.

Yes in the woods, have to be careful as lots of cyclists around on the harbour side board walks though. Lovely walled garden, sheltered for day time use for all and a courtyard with cafe.
