Great place to go for a walk and get some exercise, kids love the ducks. Look carefully and you can see other wildlife about. Park in Morrison's and use the cafe for a coffee when you're done walking.!

If you go to the morrisons roundabout and go straight on to the next roundabout and turn left, there is a gate where you can park.... You will more than likely see other cars parked there... Happy walking
