This place is a beautiful collection of trees and shrubs with lakes to sit by and just breath in the clean air and chill. Autumn is something else!

What nice walk and place to visit for a Sunday afternoon. Be prepared to do some walking and take your camera. Really enjoyed the quiet walks and big area to just get lost in. Bluebells all over the place. Well worth the visit.

Had a great day out here with my husband last month and honestly can't wait to go back again to see how the seasons and colours change. Loved the peace and tranquillity ... and the freshly made scones were fantastic too!!

Interest all year round. The views are spectacular - particularly in Autumn when the colours of the trees and shrubs are at their best. Generally good pathways although parts can be a little muddy at certain times of the year. It can be very cold...More

A gentle stroll around the whole site should take no more than a couple of hours.
