Visited on a wet November day but it was so beautiful with the two rivers full of water. I saw a fish jumping up the river. So very peaceful and quiet. Lots of chaffinches eating the nuts and food.

What can I say, nobody likes paying for car parking but this place offers an amazing amount of walking and beautiful scenery. Nice well organised paths and a lot of historically important features, would need a few visits to get the best from it.
