A 200 acre Country Park with clear walking routes, and with the added bonus of a chance to see a working 17th century water mill and buy flour milled on the spot. The mill/museum is child friendly, and makes an ideal family stop with lots to see and do in the summer. Check their website for museum opening days and times.
Refreshments are available at the cafe near the reservoir - this is separate from the museum, and seems to be closed during the winter. WCs available when the museum is open, Sat-Wed 1100-1600 from April - October; Sundays only during the winter months. P&D Parking There's a gift shop that sells bread and flour, plus related books etc.
There are several signed trails inside the country park, and if the info centre is open you can get a paper leaflet to help with the background to the park and area. Or you may prefer to just potter around - admiring the mill buildings and the green space beyond. It's very atmospheric and interesting too. The three short routes are called Owl, Badger and Fox. Badger and Fox are suitable for wheelchairs.

Great local walk
We live just up the road from here and it is a regular walk of ours. Paths clearly marked out and the longer walk takes about 45-60 mins. There is also a little bridge about half way round that has a bit of water underneath that our Cocker Spaniel loves jumping in. An abundance of wildlife to be seen and is home to 3 herons that can be seen at all times of the day
