A great place to walk the dog and meet other dogs. Inca and I visit 2 or 3 times a week and enjoy several different walks over and around the Downs. The area is well looked after and volunteers do a great job litter picking.

Lovely area for walks and the cafe did an amazing pumpkin cake. Very long queues though and may benefit from re-organisation of staff at the counter

Beautiful afternoon walking along the downs. Making it more memorable walking over the parachute gliders, kites flying and an assortment of dogs playing. What a joyful afternoon with my husband and he bought me ice cream. Very special place, everyday is different. Highly recommended.

Visited here for a walk on the downs and a good lunch. Plenty of it is paved and accessible. Dog friendly - even an area in the cafe. Plenty of parking, pay and display unless you're a National Trust member.
