Lovely place to walk, calm, peaceful, fantastic views. Early October, not at all busy. We spotted seal swimming quite close to the rocks. Wished we had brought a picnic with us so could stay longer.

Lovely place to visit, pleasant to sit and relax, or wander round the area enjoying the view. The lake can be fished and you may see some of the big carp swimming in the lilies
