Wonderful scenery at this time of year and glorious walking. Paths are well labelled and mostly accessible. What lets it down is the cafe which is quite messy. There were overflowing rubbish bins. However the cheese scones were really good.

Lovely relaxed area with lots of trees in their autumnal colours at this time. The area is not the largest but its very tranquil to wander down to the lake and see the colours from all angles. The paths are a bit steep in places...More

A stunning place to visit in the autumn. The colours are beautiful. Take deep, empty pockets in case you see any chestnuts and meddlers going begging!
