  • Very nice Sunday morning & afternoon spent here with family. Good sized, complete with mini railway and boating lake. Wildlife around the ponds quite plentiful including porpoises. Lots of photographic opportunity too. Definitely recommended for all.
  • Very interesting and absolutely beautiful! At some points it feels like you are in the middle of the forest. Be aware thought that it's very hot and humid so it's better to have a thin layer (like a T-shirt) underneath your winter clothes :)
