A great place to walk around and enjoy the scenery and blackberries. Well kept paths, some good hides and lots of birds to admire.

What a lovely place to visit. Added bonus is having the little café on site. Staff are most helpful and highly recommend a nice walk around here, finished off with a cup of tea and ice cream.

No there is not a cafe -my advise is to take lunch with you as it is quite a way to walk and lots of little spots to sit and have lunch
