Found on tripadvisor before we travelled, so I'm returning the favour here. We took a small dog for a walk round the trees and in search of the dog agility trail. Soft underfoot after some rain, paths were marked fine, but sometimes there's a few...More

as noted on other reviews the Arboretum on the right hand side of the road does not allow dog walking but there are many other good walks albeit relatively poorly marked on the route. In all could be much better with clearer messaging. Lovely place...More
