Pubs/Cafes

In the warmer months you'll generally find an ice cream van at the site where you can pick up some basic refreshments. If you fancy something more substantial head into Northend where and pay a visit to The Red Lion. It's a fine traditional village pub with a good menu at reasonable prices. They also have a good sized garden area to relax in on warmer days. You can find the pub just to the north of the park on Bottom Street, Northend with a postcode of CV47 2TJ for your sat navs.

Dog Walking

The open space of the hills are an excellent place to bring your dog. You're bound to bump into other dogs on a fine day when you visit. The Red Lion pub mentioned above is also very dog friendly and can provide water bowls and treats.
