I am lucky enough for my flat to back onto the valley, and i absolutely love it. Down there almost every day. Perfect walks with my dog, perfect to go and take photos, perfect to just sit by the river and relax.

Great for walks especially with dogs as there is a stream where they can splash away. Bridges and stepping stones where you can cross. No hills to climb all flat. Very pretty. Good cafe too serving breakfasts and cakes etc.
