Lovely well marked out walks around the forest and out on the top of a hill with great views. Slippy in places at this time of year. Lovely cafe near the car park.

I still walk my dogs daily here, nothing much changes and I feel they are waiting for the day the HS2 runs through rather than improving anything. The amount of rubbish strewn around is terrible, not the fault of the staff but more efforts could...More
