The Riverside Trail is now CLOSED until Spring 2019.

Discover the stunning wildlife and nature that runs alongside the River Avon and our beautiful 1 & 1/4 mile Riverside Trail .

Highlights of the Riverside Trail include:

Animals galore! See our Red and Fallow Deer, Wallabies, Rhea and Rare Breed Cattle & Sheep.


Nature Garden

Our Boating Lake 

Fishing Lake

Obstacle course


If you wish to fish we allow fishing on one of our lakes!  It is included in general park admission, all you need to bring is your fishing licence and tackle!  We ask that you kindly return all fish to the lake.

Please note: For safety reasons, the Riverside Walk is closed in line with the River level. Please do not access this area if the gates are closed.

An excellent, affordable day out, for all the family.

Animals Galore

We have a variety of animals alongside the Riverside Trail, from Rhea and Wallabies, to British animals Soay Sheep, Highland Cattle, Jacob Sheep - you may even spot some of the wildlife that visits us - the Canadian Geese, ducks, swans, badgers, foxes and more!


During the summer period, our resident Falconer runs a display on weekends and school holidays. Meet the Barn Owl, Kestrel, European Eagle Owl and much more! Flying displays take place on good-weather days.

Obstacle Course

The entire length of the Riverside Trail has all sorts of obstacles to test your stamina and strength. Can you challenge yourself to try every one?

Boating Lake

Take time out of your day to take your family out across our specially-made boating lake.

Nature Garden

Our Nature Garden is a little haven with wild flowers, bee hive and wild pond - we've even got a Bug Hotel!

Fishing Lake

We have a dedicated Fishing Lake, great for catching all sorts of fish, and great for our 'Pond-dipping' activities too!

Please note: as the lake changes with the river, we cannot guarantee the fish in this lake. If you wish to fish on the lake, you must pay the day admission and show your fishing licence on entry. We do not have any facility to park near the lake.
