We took our dog here and thoroughly enjoyed the park. We had a wander through the woods and out onto the beach. Didn't get a chance to try the cafe but it looked good.

Incredible and natural views. Perfect for dog walking and couples. Really enjoyed walking over the pebble beach and looking at the cliffs, the greenery was lovely too! Only downfall is the toilets, dirty and in need of a good clean as full of insects.

Bring a football, or bat for rounders and in good weather you can BBQ. Good play area and apparatus for children Good cafe for coffee and snacks. Walk to beach and throw pebbles in the sea. Stunning viaduct above to photograph.

We visited here with our two young daughters who absolutely loved it, seeing the streams and paddling through them. It was busy on the day we went but still managed to park within walking distance. Our daughters especially loved the pebble beach they went looking for fossils and spent ages exploring then played happily in the play area all in... More

Pay and display parking very reasonable. Super place to roam in the fresh air, ideal for family picnic with a number of BBQ sites. The beach is peppers and is very popular with fishermen but is a real adventure paradise for children. Swing park is safe and good but when the sun shines it's very very busy. There is a... More

Enormous Field for kids to play on, for picnics and bbqs, games etc. Dipping ponds with tadpoles, streams, paths through the woods to explore and an enclosed play area for younger children. Also has a 9 hole pitch and putt course. All in the shadow of an enormous railway viaduct. Plenty of free parking, public toilets and a cafe. Idyllic!

A wonderful parkland for walkers and families !! Leading on to a pebble beach with views of the West Country. A lovely viaduct where you can watch local trains travelling over and also view aeroplanes taking off and landing.

Beautiful views to be had here. Very good for both beach walks and plane spotting if the weather is right. Due to the natural valley however, I would recommend you bring a wind breaker as the cold, Bristol Channel wind can really bite.
