    Lovely walking routes with some beautiful scenery across the lake. Perfect for a weekend stroll. The Forest Centre itself is also a nice place to have a coffee with a dedicated quieter space upstairs. They have a range of alternative milks for hot drinks and also have a large food menu including vegan options. Great for kids too with a colouring station for rainy days and a gated play area for sunny days.

    Really lovely nature reserve with numerous bird hides. Charge for the reserve is £2.50. Good for a short walk & a drink in the café after. Lots of parking which is charged

    We held my daughter's wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception here. Helen and her team were amazing, going above and beyond to ensure the day ran smoothly for us. The venue was beautiful set up, spotlessly clean and felt very private away from visitors to the centre. The food was delicious and everything arrived on time and hot. No problem with special dietary requirements. I would thoroughly recommend the Forest Centre as a beautiful location to host a wedding with an outstanding team of staff who felt more like friends.

    A great place to walk and enjoy nature. The park is set up to accommodate dog walkers, runners, horse riders and cyclists - to name but a few. At the centre of the park is a great cafe and play area which makes for a great spot to relax after your walk, or to spend the day with family. Highly recommend a visit here, its a fantastic addition to the village.
