We took the dogs for a walk and were really pleased we did. Great place, LOADS of space for dogs / kids and fun adults to run around. Cafe is great and everything is well organised. Really recommended for a nice day out.

We downloaded the Gruffalo app and it is very clever. Turns standard looking signs into creatures from the book. The cafe offers good value meals that are tasty. Beautiful scenery, play areas regularly located. BRILLIANT.

There is a cafe that has lovely food but queues can be long and seating can be limited. There is quite a bit of seating outside too though. Lots of places to picnic as well.
