A huge tourist sign said ‘Ulley Country Park. The car park confusion immediately set off a bad mood. Memo to operator....get a new system. It’s awful. The park itself has no food or drink and is literally just a walk. No problem with that but...More

I come here as regular as possible. It is ideal for a leisurely walk. Although it is quite busy on cafe days, it is worth it just to see (and try) the delicious food. Well worth a visit for all.

We like to go here for a walk and look out for different birds and butterflies. When it's cafe day one sunday every month it's always busy there are lovely homemade cakes and drinks. Also they run events on these sundays something different each month.

The sailing club must attract the most rude people in the area! Some poor chap had his fishing tackle swept away by a rich git in a yacht! When he complained he was told to get lost pleb!

great for dog walking - you can park for free down the side roads. Quiet with picnic benches - great for dogs that like to swim. Clean and lots of dog poo bins. Just lovely.
