While we stoped for the Nymsfield barrow, we found the view from Coaley Peak to be much more enthralling. It was too windy the day we were there, but there are large spaces for picnics!

Not far from the National Trust Woodchester Park, nice view on a clear day and the Cotswold Way National Trail goes through it. Worth a visit or picnic 👍

I grew up in Stroud, and always went for long walks along Rodborough, Minchinhampton and Selsley common, and never really ventured up to Coaly Peak much. I'm recently beginning to appreciated it a lot more now. Makes me feel blessed to have been brought up...More

Free of the lead again today and went back every time I was called, other than when another cute cockapoo made friends. Found out that rabbit poo tastes nice, yummy. What a great place to run and relax, with superb views over the Severn Vale....More

It's just like a massive field at the top of a hill, where you can park and walk your senior citizens for amazing view, quite flat. For the more adventurous there are walks radiating from Coaley Peak to surrounding areas... More
