This place will always be busy with dog walkers but the decent paths mean that it is great to go walking there all year round! You don't have to keep to the paths though and can go exploring through the woods themselves.

Enjoyable stroll through the woods on our way to Harlow Carr. People walking. Dogs playing. Birds singing. We loved the little fairy doors.

On a hot day, there is nothing better than to escape to this cool sanctuary. Plenty of seats to sit and enjoy the view. Loved it.

No visit to Valley Gardens is complete without a walk through The Pinewoods. There are plenty of benches along the trail so you can take your time going through. The views are amazing. We saw squirrels, woodpeckers, nuthatches, robins and sparrows A beautiful place indeed

Pinewoods is like the label says, Pinewoods and as such it's just a walk through the pine trees, the path is fairly narrow and used by walkers and cyclists, it's can be muddy in places, there is a nice viewing area looking over the adjacent...More
