Nice place to walk the dogs. But it was quite muddy. Limited dry areas to walk. Too many dog owners not being responsible and letting dogs run free. Will try it again in warmer weather. Try out a picnic on the picnic tables maybe.

This is a lovely place to walk, very safe and dog friendly. There are lots of options for direction, maps so you can’t get lost. Lots of wildlife and there was some coppicing going on so it seems well managed.

Live very local this, do not get there often enough. Every time I do go, we always get lost in the Back woods and horse run. Recommended for gentle stroll in the trees.

It looks like such a lovely place for a walk and many people like to take their dogs, but I'm always struck by how little wildlife seems to be around given that this is a designated nature area. Other local places like Burbage Common and...More

Free parking and always plenty of space here. There is a small water area for dogs to play at the entrance / exit and it's never very busy. Everyone is always super friendly and there are a variety of walking routes.

We have watched this place develop over the last 15 years or so. It has suffered a continuous, escalting problem with dogs (or rather their owners). From the ever present dog fouling to the huge amount of erosion to every water course. A shame, as...More

Great place to go for a long walk. Excellent for dog walkers. Great for families, places to explore, play area and some additional natural climbing frames dotted around the site
