Carnfunnock Country Park
Just a short drive up the coast is the beautiful Carnfunnock Country Park.
The park is set on 191 hectares of mixed woodland and gardens and was originally part of the estate of Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon but has since been purchased and run by the local council. Many of the original features still remain including the walled garden, ice house and lime kilns.
There are 5 marked walking trails from the Garden Trail which is 0.8 miles / 1.3km and takes approximately 20 minutes to the Woodland Trail which is 2.5 miles / 4km and takes around an hour to complete.
Also on site are some fun activities including a Play Park and the privately owned Family Fun Zone.
