Visited purely to enjoy a walk. There are leaflets available from the carpark ticket office detailing 4 walks - a 30 minute stroll, a 60 minute walk, and 2 x 90 minute walks. All are within the grounds of the property on well trodden routes. Although many people were equipped for 'proper' walking, we did fine in warm clothes and wellies. Some of the routes will be suitable for more rugged pushchairs, but I imagine wheelchairs would struggle.
We took the longer route today, and were rewarded with beautiful views over Stockport into Manchester, passed through pastures full of deer, crossed a few streams and wandered through woods. Despite remaining within the grounds of the property it almost felt like genuine countryside walking, without the need for careful journey planning.
At the end of the walk you can settle down to a warm drink and a cake, or a more substantial meal, but be warned the queues can be large on popular days and there isn't sufficient seating. Many braved the outdoor tables but it proved too cold for us!
