“Since opening we really have had a summer of all seasons. From scorching hot days, to down pours and blustering winds, put that hasn’t stopped people coming to explore!! It's been an absolute pleasure to see so many people enjoying the meadows come rain or shine!
I know Sally, David and the team at Rutland Cycling as well as Paul and Danny and their team at Jenno's Coffee House have also been amazed at the number of visitors they have seen, and all the lovely comments people have shared.”
