Truly spectacular views, car park and plenty of seating to enjoy the scenery. Worth noting that alternative 'scenery' emerges after nightfall when the doggers arrive...each to their own I guess.

While we stoped for the Nymsfield barrow, we found the view from Coaley Peak to be much more enthralling. It was too windy the day we were there, but there are large spaces for picnics!

Not far from the National Trust Woodchester Park, nice view on a clear day and the Cotswold Way National Trail goes through it. Worth a visit or picnic 👍
