Great place to go. Quiet and peaceful. Always something to see in summer or on a wintery snowy day. If you are lucy and very quiet you may see a red squirrel or some roe deer.

We've visited here a few times now. Easy to find, free parking and a wonderful forest area to explore. So lucky to have this on our doorstep and the dog loves it too!
