and make for a fantastic day out for both parents with babies and toddlers. The house itself is set on overlooking a lake on a large estate with woodland and landscaped gardens. There are extensive walks around the gardens and loads of green space for toddlers to run around. There is also a lovely cafe with plenty of space for strollers and a fantastic outdoor seating area. For older toddlers, you can take a boat trip out onto the lake and see ‘the meeting of the waters’ (life jackets are provided on board).Torc Waterfall is nearby however the hill to the top of the waterfall is steep and mucky so keep this in mind if you decide to visit. The waterfall is full visible from the base however and you will get stunning views a short walk from the roadside parking area.
