Great place to be outside in the sunshine and have a walk around the well kept gardens. My mum and I went in the blazing heat a few weeks ago. Parking was easy (and free!) and we had a drink and a slice of cake in the cafe and then a walk around the gardens. The cafe is reasonably priced and had a large selection of cakes and snacks. We grabbed a seat outside overlooking the lake and gardens...more

The House itself was interesting and well maintained,...more

Hall place, it's a large park that tends to get a lot of dog walkers, it also hosts a few events in the summer like craft sales. It has some sports teams that play here, with goalposts going up in the footy season and a cricket pitch maintained over summer. There used to be a rope swing over the stream though that was many years ago, I don't imagine it's still there now.

They have a...more
