A really lovely park and visitor centre. The Peter Rabbit trail is very nice and popular. the visitor centre is nicely put together with a small shop and nice cafe/restaurant. A good way to spend an hour or two.

The staff in the shop are very helpful and polite. It’s surrounded by amazing woods, lake, fields and play area. Have visited a couple of times since my first visit. My two year old loves this nature trail. So many activities to do as well.
