A recent find but now a firm favourite. The park is huge and you can easily spend up to 3 hours if not longer. Set around 3 (or possibly four!) vast lakes, pathed routes will take you round the ever increasing and changing site.

For dogs that like to rootle in wooded areas, there is the Bluebell Wood. This starts off downhill but slowly increases and can get muddy - but is doable in a mobility scooter (available for free hire if you contact the site before your planned visit). If you fancy Bluebell Wood but not the climb, there is the riverside walk. This can get slippy and muddy so make sure you have boots with good grip if you opt for this.

As the name suggests, the park is set in Meadows so you can exoect to see cows grazing in fenced off flats. Dogs are free to run off lead through-out the park, and there is also a huge green space by the main car park where dogs play ball.

Other essentials include:

2 x cafes with fresh water bowls that are kept clean and refreshed. Personal preference is the newly added Lakeside Cafe which seems staffed by a number of young dog loving staff whi will make a fuss of your dog.

2 x Car Parks which are pay on entry (no time limit) but only if there is an attendent on duty. If you are an early bird, this means it is usually free but after 10:00 on weekends, it is usually £3 which given the great state of the park, I am more than prepared to pay.

Toilets for the walkers and LOTS of poop bins for the dogs!

Lakes for dogs to dive in to - some with added ducks to swim after (but watch out for swans and hissing geese).

Miniature Railway (small and terrier-sized dogs allowed).

    Walk there every other day. Great place for dog walking. There is a small agility course as well.

    I travel half hour to go here quite often with our Lab, lovely varied scenery, from lakes, meadows, woods and more. Nice big place so you can walk for hours. Fun little wooden dog agility course there too. The parking is pay before you leave and price is dependent on how long you've been there, but it's only around 3 quid for a few hours which I don't think is bad at all :)

    For the dog agility course, if you park at the Lake cafe car park it's in the field just next to it. If you look on the parks website for a map it shows you on there :)
