Great walks and a very good place for a weekend stroll. Don't bother paying to park they rarely check the vehicles for tickets, and cannot clamp you or enforce any fine through court etc. Paying to park here is ridiculous and none of the parking fee actually goes to the upkeep of the hill at all. I know this because... More

On a windy wet day the beauty of this place could still be appreciated. None of the walks were too strenuous so ideal for family's . My only complaint is please will people clean up after their dogs. There were signs and bins everywhere so no excuse to not do so.

This would be one of my favourite places to walk if they could only do something about the amount of dog poo here... I say put a fine in place and send out some undercover spies! :) Other than that, really beautiful and the kids love it... trees to climb, views to see and perfect for bikes and scooters too.

Loved the Gruffalo Trail- shame about the dogmuck and the need for constant reminders for dog owners to pick up their dogs mess. Some of the signs were clearly too subtle to get through to some dog owners though.

A lovely walk, they have different paths for ability, I took my granddaughter who is 4 so we took the easy route. But be careful not to wonder of it, or you could find yourself lost like I did

Very scenic walks very well sign posted and easy for small children. Car park is good but is pay and display at £1 all day so take some change. There is a good snack shop which serves teas, coffee, and bacon butties. All very reasonably priced. The only negative is careless dog walkers and the dog mess around the path... More

We took the kids to take part in finding the gruffalo. The kids really loved walking through the woods and looking for the clues. Only let down was the fact they didnt have a big gruffalo like id seen at rhe other Venues :(
