We were walking but there were cycles available for hire at reasonable cost. A nice cafe and loos. Ample parking and miles of picturesque pathways to travel at your own pace. Will return to do some more

Enjoyed this relatively easy cycle trail surrounded by beautiful countryside. Never far from somewhere to stop for a snack and a drink. Good gravel surface makes it comfortable for cycling but also lovely for walking along too.
