Well worth a walk through the woods, especially to see the huge boulders, which are quite unusual but also quite impressive. Enjoy an explore. We had beautiful weather, which really made our experience very enjoyable

Amazing rocks and great walks. Lots of picnic spots. Really good for kids. Tricky on the stones sometimes.

Lovely crepe and refreshments in the garden with friendly service. However, need to give the garden seating a bit of a make over. Shabby Plastic chairs and tables an uneven ground, there is going to be an accident soon.

A surprisingly busy little town. Nice area, lake OK, woodland walks are very pleasant but not as tranquil as some of the blurb would suggest.

This lovely forest in a regional park has a mystical aspect to it. There are huge boulders and trees covered with moss that add to the atmosphere. Just a lovely place to quiet the spirit.
