Oakfield Park is a 100 acre garden, consisting of award winning walled gardens to ponds, lakes, a lakeside Nymphaeum, a hedge maze, heritage trees and sculptures. Our crowning glory is a 4.5km narrow gauge railway with a diesel and steam train operating passenger trips daily. This is a magical way to explore the park s gardens as the train passes through flower meadows, beautiful woodlands, willow tunnels, boardwalks, heritage trees and sparkling streams and lakes. After a day rambling around the parklands, you can refuel in Buffers Garden Restaurant, which is open daily and serves a delicious selection of home baked goodies, light bites and meals - all created with produce from the park and gardens.
