About this walk

A lovely woodland filled with Bluebells in the spring And a dog friendly double decker bus/cafe which sells amazing breakfast butties, coffees, hot chocolate and doggy flapjack on weekends.
The decent sized carpark is £1 for the day or you can buy a season pass for the year off the council for a very reasonable price.
There are a couple of different routes, the longest taking about an hour if you don’t stop. If you dog has good recall they can do the entire walk off lead as once you are in the Wood they are pretty fenced in by dry stone walls.
It’s mostly populated by joggers, dog walkers and squirrels and has a stream half way round for you dog to have splash splash and a slurp.
Lots of poo bins too if you stick to the routes!
My springer loves it!

    Beautiful woodland, bluebells everywhere. Lots of paths of the beaten track to get lost on. Superbly maintained.

    Lovely peaceful walk
  • My Springer spaniels loved it! They were able to be off lead the whole way round even when we were on the side with the road it was safe.
