A walk in the woodlands to revive your sole. This quit and peaceful place will revive you for the rest of the week. Keep an eye open for deer, bird boxes, bat boxes, moorehens. I even saw a barn owl once.

Enjoyed a beautiful early morning dog walk in this woodland when I I was lucky enough to have the nature reserve all to myself! Nice stream running through and informative boards educating people about the habitats within fallen trees

This unspoilt woodland is a lovely place for an afternoon walk with the family/dog! There is no parking by you can leave your car at Seaton Tower Garage and walk in that way. There are beautiful bluebells during early Spring :)
