This is a pretty walk where you can enjoy nature. There are benches for those who need a break from walking, or just to sit and enjoy the peace. There is also a nearby cafe for coffee, lunch, etc. either before or after your walk.

Do you want fresh air and gentle exercise? Then you should have a gentle walk in the woodland. After go for a refreshing drink in the nearby cafe.

So glad you enjoy walking in the woods. There are plenty of all-weather paths for those who prefer to keep their shoes clean whilst providing some grassy paths which other people enjoy - although can get a bit muddy at times.
