Something for everyone in this park. A wonderful children's playground which is even better in the Summer with the water feature. Lovely walks, beautiful gardens, the orangery, the stables and a lovely cafe. Also excellent toilets in the stable block and by the children's play area.

This park is large with so many interesting areas, the playground area is a good size and suitable for very young to teenage children, it has a large pond with ducks and viewing platforms. Our Grandchildren particularly like investigating the wooded area, where we find chestnuts and conkers in the Autumn. There is also a small maze made out of... More
