Explore nearly 100 acres of peaceful woodland in this country park in Norfolk. The park is situated around the River Glaven and contains several delightful trails through the woods including Scots Pine, Oak and Silver Birch. The park includes a Visitors Centre, a waymarked arts trail and a cycle route.
The area is great for wildlife so keep your eyes peeled for grazing ponies, various woodland birds and butterflies fluttering around the park's wildflowers.
