Parked at the Ramblers Retreat, which sadly was closed due to a family bereavement,and did the circular walk stopping off halfway at the Alton bridge hotel for good.

Really beautiful in the autumn colours and great views of around Alton. There's some shorter walks you can do with small children but beware it can be really muddy with a dog.... The Ramblers retreat is a fab cafe with converted sheds making lovely bolt holes for a family cream tea...

An amazing and unspoiled place for pleasant walks, with seats dotted around for chatting, while looking across amazing and breathtaking views of canopy below. Only 20 mins from centre of Stoke and some great local eateries withing 5 to 10 minute drive.

Did a circular walk in the Dale, enchanting views, peaceful, to too many people. Wild raspberries. Shallow river - the dog loved it.

Lovely walks especially with your dog. Families with young children can relax and let them run and jump and let off steam. Lovely.

I was taking 5 teens to Alton Towers for the day and didn't want to go in, but it was a bit far to drive home. I searched for something to do online and this place popped up. It's only 15 minutes from Alton Towers, the parking is good and there are a selection of signposted walks. It is also... More

Nice place for a walk with a family or dogs, you can follow a chain of lakes up the valley. It has gotten a bit overgrown with himalayan balsam and rhododendrons. Could be a brilliant nature reserve with a bit or work.
