Really happy with our picnic there and the pram friendly walk around the pond. Don't venture too far off the path as several irresponsible dog owners forgot to pick up their pet's mess so finding a spot for our picnic blanket was challenging.

I love coming here with my dog. It's lovely for walking and it's all flat. Everybody is so friendly as you are walking around. Well worth a visit especially while the sun is shining.

Great spot to walk the dog. Car park costs £1. In summer you can buy ice creams. Dogs can swim in the pond, which is lovely.
