Lovely walk, nearly dry underfoot now (late May). If you walk out on to the heath where the ponies graze, be aware cattle are on there too. You may not see them, but they do leave their deposits behind and some dogs find them delicious!...More

We got sick of the amount of dogs (we saw 5 in the short time we were there), running around the place, after 20 minutes we gave up and went back to the car. Why can't the dogs be on a lead instead of chasing...More
