I went here the other day for something to eat and the service was brilliant. I was served by a blonde girl (unfortunatly i can't remember her name) who was very polite and helpful. The food was also really good.

This is a great place to go for an afternoon outdoors. There is plenty to do for all ages and the Play Trail is a great way to get the kids to enjoy an afternoons walk in the woods.

Well worth a visit anytime of the year. Superb walks and specimen trees and plants. Activities available on site and a per car entrance fee makes it a very affordable day out.

The scenery and walks are amazing. The entry fee is very reasonable and per car not per person. Could do with clearer directions when walking especially if you have young children. Worth checking regarding wheelchair access prior to visiting.

Hi. You have to pay for parking which is £12 for a car for the whole day. There is no other specific entry fee.

Was wondering about the £3 parking on Saturday mornings - do you have to leave by 10.30 or just arrive and pay by 10.30? Thanks!

There is a cafe that has lovely food but queues can be long and seating can be limited. There is quite a bit of seating outside too though. Lots of places to picnic as well.
