Was a nice place to walk, but facilities really let it down. No bins and caf■ not able to manage it being busy. More staff at your busy times, and something separate if people don't want to go in the caf■ and just want an ice cream

Loved our walk there today. Got a bit lost looking for the car park again. Signs with an arrow and a simple P sign would help ;-)

But a wonderful place.
