“Hidden gem”

Manor Park Country Park
Attraction details
Reviewed July 26, 2017 via mobile

This is a lovely park. It has a nice nature trail, kids play area, open spaces and facilities. The lake area is also a nice feature.

They have a cafe, which offers loads of different drinks and food, but they do not take card payments.

The grass and trees have always been well kept also.

There has always been flush parking spaces when I've been.

The only two negative comments I would say are that there are cattle in the open fields and there aren't many warning signs etc. I'd expect a more lively dog to approach them without fear.

The other is that my last trip to the kids play, there were literately a hundred (maybe 80-100) school kids in high viz jackets crammed into the play area, whom had taken over the place. It was very selfish of the teachers and parents.. Obviously this isn't the parks fault but it really put me off.

Apart from that, I will continue to go back.

Thank Ryan N

Beautiful parkland, great for walking and training the dog. Bit miffed that parking is not free surely they take enough from the cafe not to need extra from parking!

thank you for your review, glad you really enjoyed your visit. the café is a privately run enterprise. The fees from the car park help to fund general upkeep and maintenance, the toilets and of course the great work the wardens do. hope to see you again soon.

Parking is £2 so bring change.
The play area is good, there are picnic benches nearby. It's nice to eat, play then go for a little walk down by the large pond (or small lake?!)

There are ducks there although I understand the swans have recently gone (injury after a dog attack, I read) which is a shame. Water rats are always fun to observe and they are quite bold if you have some left over picnic, which delights the children.

You can easily spend a good 3 hours here, cheaply if you bring a picnic, although I have also enjoyed the fare from the cafe, and bribed the children with the ice-creams...a way to leave quickly when the time comes.

We will remain regular visitors.

Visited Manor Country Park on Wednesday. Great location with a fabulous cafe. The service was impeccable from the lady "Carrie" (I believe). She made us feel very welcome on a very hot day. As an avid cyclist we frequent many a cafe on our travels around Kent and the surrounding county's. I have to say Manor Park Country Park cafe is up there with the best of them. Highly recommend this little gem. Open all year round. Keep up the good work, Carrie is certainly an asset.

We popped in here for a walk around the lake. We had never been here before and were pleasantly surprised. Very clean and well maintained park. Although not a long walk around the lake it is just the right length. We are already thinking about having a family picnic in the summer this year.

The food hut does have a basic menu but the food is very good, hot and cooked with a smile. There are also toilets and plenty of tables. You do have to pay for parking.
