Cafe could be a lot better, but it’s not really making much effort. Park run on Saturday morning so good to avoid then.

The main house was not open because of an event but the park is enormous with woods and open fields. Good photos of the deer in rutt.

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
