Pubs/Cafes

There's a very good on site cafe selling a range of meals and snacks. There’s delicious homemade cakes and an eco-friendly wood fired pizza oven.

Dog Walking

The woodland and parkland trails are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably meet other owners on your visit. There's also a pond where they can go for a dip. This is signposted from the visitor centre where water bowls are also available.
Please keep them on leads around the trim trail, visitor centre, car park, fishing lake, play areas and where the cattle are grazing.
