Lovely small country park, spoiled by the stupidity of Eastleigh council. You start with the pay and display car parking which requires change, try and get change when the cafe is closed! Then you move on to the glib signs telling you to take your...More

Great fun. Really recommend it. Was a bit daunted at first but soon relaxed into the challenges offered by the course.

Really nice place to go for a walk or have a lovely picnic. For the adventurous among us, there is Go Ape where you can ride the Zip Wires that are in the tree tops. Plenty of parking and a nice Cafe on site too.

I don't have a pushchair myself, however when I have visited I've seen families with young children in them. Hope this helps
