  • There's nothing better than a fenced in playground for kids. The coffee is good and a decent price as well as food and duck food. Plenty of space to sit and eat with and without shade. Always clean and tidy with friendly staff. Parking is available as well as plenty of street space and easily accessible via free shuttle bus. They host plenty of fun activities throughout the year for kids and families and even run education classes on gardening for all ages. Could not recommend enough absolutely love it here.
  • Great spot for family to enjoy. Has play area, duck pond, rose garden and lots of areas to relax and enjoy. There is a coffee cart on Sat but bring your own food and drink. There is a coffee cart near the main entrance
