Lovely location with a good kitchen and adjacent eating area. The very top room has very steep stairs and so not suited to children or the elderly. However, it felt like an adventure climbing up to it. Under my watch my 4 year old grandson climbed it and thought it great fun, but it is dangerous for unsupervised children. A door at the bottom stopsRead more them getting onto the steep stairs which was good. Great local park for the children to play and feed the ducks. Hide
