This is a truly picturesque place to visit. Lovely bit of history dating back 4000 years. Parking only £2 for the day. Lovely clear, clear water to paddle in on a hot sunny day. Kids can catch a range of little fish etc with nets, there is space to take a BBQ and have a picnic. Just a great place to chill out.
