Open grassland, ponds and wooded walks, so much rural to see, so close to London's west end. Parking in certain areas, public transport/busses pass by. Early Autumn colours are stunning. Beware of the Golf course/balls. Try to find the Windmill! Plenty of trees for kids...More

Ideal if you just want to get away from it all for a few hours. Though it can get very busy you can easily find a quiet spot for reflection. It's stunning in the summer and equally as stunning in frosty winter mornings. Bring wellies...More
