I've been going here to run with the dog, there is a nice circuit to use with areas that veer off if you prefer a nice long walk. Stunning views £1.50 for the carpark

Great view, open grass land, small broken castle and lots of wildlife. Highly recommend especially if you like to fly a kite with the updraft from the side of the downs

Well organised park. The views are great. It is located at the top of Detling Hill so it overlooks a large area. Relatively big park but not many trails. Maybe 2 miles worth of well-maintained trails. Pets are allowed and it appears that the owners...More
