Visited here during good weather so lots of people about. Lots of children climbing trees - good to see! Did the Five Ponds Trail with 83 year old mother which was about enough for her. Glad that the National Trust have preserved this place.

Although no house or buildings to see this is a lovely place to visit as there are a range of walks suitable for all. The paths are well kept and directional signs are very clear. There is a nice cafe with adequate seating available .
