  • A beautiful country park. This is one of my favourite places. Fantastic wildlife and a great place for walking, cycling or simply relaxing. Lots of parking and two cafes that offer excellent refreshments.Children's play areas and even a miniature railway. BBQ areas and numerous places to have picnics. We really enjoy walking round the lakes and then relaxing watching the world go by.
  • Ferry Meadows camping and caravanning site is vast and situated on a country park with lots of walks and scenery. We only stayed overnight but would love to go back and experience the full potential of the site. The pitches are very spacious and the setting is tranquil, unless you get a pitch near the steam railway that runs adjacent to the camp. It also has a second site just over the road that acts as a sort of overspill at peak times. Will definitely be going back to explore more in the near future.👍
