Beautiful place, stunning views and incredible sceng of the woods. Absolutely amazing. Pretty easy walk, some parts of it are even available to prams and wheel chairs. The little cefe in the visitors centre serve delicious soups and snacs and also drinks.

Not quite as well maintained as it used to be. All the things that had been done for children seems to have overgrown or broken. Still nice for a walk though

Love it up here. Park in the main car park with the visitor centre for £1. Walk up round the fell, through the forests and feel completely at peace. Best early in the morning as quite popular.

Good car parking. Information centre is interesting, cafe serves nice cakes. Walks for all abilities. Shame the snake on the sculpture trail needs repairing and been informed the black tiger had been stolen. Apart from that a good venue.
