Discovered this place by accident on a warm Sunday afternoon. Had a lovely ramble with the little'un, Got a little lost wandering off the beaten path, which was great fun. Made us wish we had a dog to walk it there.

We started at Donnington Castle and walked around the Golf course, and into Snelsmore Common. We walked for an hour and the views were stunning from the top of the hill. The dog enjoyed it too.

There are plenty of little tracks to be explored on bikes, just need to be careful of dogs roaming around off their leads.
