Wildlife & Gardens
Celebrate the seasons and feel inspired while exploring 36 acres of beautiful parkland. Whether it's a gentle stroll, a walk with the dog or a family day out, there is plenty for everyone to enjoy.
Why not join in with a Wildlife Tour held monthly or book in for an evening Badger Walk in the summer. Explore and discover on a Bug Hunt or try a trail in the wildlife area. Or simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the grounds which offer a peaceful space for quiet reflection.
Please do be aware the ponds are deep which is one of the reasons we ask you to ensure children are accompanied at all times.
