  • Beautiful and large area to wonder around, please note you may barely get the mobile signal, so if you are a ‘Always online’ kind, not a place. But it is a nice serene place to wonder around along with your kid, family and pets. There is a great cafe house and two large parking area for you. Parking is not free. I will recommend to visit to this place with your friends and families and you may have a small picnic too.
  • A really great place to take the dogs for a walk. There are plenty of different trails to take whether you're just wanting to go for a short stroll or prefer to go on a longer walk. There's a wide range of scenery including woodlands, lakes, meadows and even a Gruffalo trail of you're going with the kids.
