Yes, I saw a lot of people with dogs, there is plenty of open space and woodland to walk in.
does it have there a decent restaurant for lunch or just a 'cafe' ?

Response from Philip S | Reviewed this property |
There is a decent cafe located in the 18th century coach house, but if you want a more substantial meal you would be better going to the Brown Cow at Whitkirk, newly re-furnished.
