There's a small on site cafe selling meals and hot drinks.

Dog Walking

The park is very dog friendly with a waymarked Dogs Trust walking route to try. The woodland trails and lakeside paths are popular with dog owners so you'll probably bump into a few on your visit.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas

A few miles south west of the site there's another fine country park in the shape of Rother Valley Country Park. There's a series of lakes and a watersports centre here. Harthill Reservoir and Pebley Reservoir are also located just east the site.
Just to the south of Worksop there's one of the highlights of the area at Clumber Park. There's 3,800 acres of woodland, open heath and rolling farmland to explore here.
A couple of miles to the south east there's Hodsock Priory to explore. The historic park is open to the public in February for the annual snowdrop walks. All year round you can explore the wider estate on a circular public footpath though.
