It's a nice walk, was able to let the dog off the lead and he met with other dogs off lead also. Signs could do with being updated as there are a few turns that lead to dead ends. Would recommend.

This is one to get the blood flowing, uneven surfaces are great exercise if you’re up to it. We take the dog who loves it too. Be careful in the frost and ice though as the wooden walkways can get slippery.

Having had a great day as part of a Hens' party at Causey Farm, I thought my husband and I would try the looped walk. We couldn't find anywhere to leave the car and came home.

Found this on the Internet and drove an hour to get to it. I have given it 3 stars mainly due to the lack of local signage and the access roads. Access is terrible and no signage at all on the local roads to advertise...More
