This is a fantastic place with lots of tracks and trails to follow. It has bird spotting huts and beautiful woodland to walk through as well as meadows and a play area for children.

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.

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.
