Loved our half term visit here. Lots to see as the other reviewers have mentioned. We always take our kids to the wildlife garden (you pass it on the drive in, down hill from the car park) We pond dip there, have a quiet picnic and run around. There is orienteering posts there but we've yet to locate the map!
Nice area.heritage centre is good butif the exploring the area is even better in my eyes especially if you are into geocaching. Lots of caches near Park Bridge extending all the way to daisy nook and up to hartshead pike
