A must for hikers and just gentle strollers. Lots of parking available and lots of hills to climb. The highest beacon is great on a sunny day you can see for miles.

We stopped at the car park (£4 a day July 2017) where the B4232 meets the A449. It's then uphill along a choice of paths to the top (338m) and great views. There is a café and also toilets and a hotel nearby.
