Stunning is simply the best way to describe this expanse of rolling countryside and agricultural land dotted with towns and villages. Not only be amazed at the beauty but this area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) is a great way to enjoy nature.

Regularly make the trip up here in the car. It's absolutely beautiful and makes for great photographs plus is amazing for the dog walking. Always really lovely like minded people you meet on the walks. Head up to Devils Dyke for panoramic views
