We hired bikes from the hire shop and had a 2 hour cycle around the estate which helped tire the kids out! Amazing to walk through the field and walk alongside the beautiful deer.

Balloons are a bit temperamental. Too cloudy too windy too wet. Any or all of the above and there will be no balloons to see and you will end up sitting watching a wet field. The balloon festival can be good but this year it...More

This reminds me of what child hood should be like... No electronics just ball games and picnics in wide open spaces and smiling faces. Lovely location great views and even when busy you can find your own quiet spot to appreciate the world around you

To have such a superb piece of countryside virtually in the City is splendid. The only less than wonderful bit is the golf! Rabbits and green keepers have some sort of completion for the most holes on a green. Rabbits are winning I fear!!

Yes it is. We recently had a birthday with balloons and banners etc. It will be fine as long as you tidy up afterwards

Easy walk over the suspension bridge to the estate - no distance and probably the best idea as the traffic is normally heavy and parking a nightmare....I always walked there for the balloon fiesta, quicker than driving
