While Mum was staying with us I took her there for a walk and a spot of bird watching, which is her favourite activity. The car park cost us 50p (there is an honesty box, so if you were really mean you could park for free!) but the lake itself has free entry. It's possible to walk all the way round, but Mum is 88 now, so it was a bit too far for us to consider. There were several anglers, some horse riders, several walkers and even a few families just enjoying the peace and quiet.
A very enjoyable couple of hours.
