Good adventure for children to follow the trail and pleasant walk for parents dog friendly too, anything from one to three hour walk depending on the group. I would recommend taking your own food there are good picnic spots and if you have 2/3 children...More

The sculpture trail is very enjoyable, despite many of the sculptures proving hard to find. They are not clearly sign posted. The tracks around the forest are well laid out, and a lovely hour can be spent there! In the summer you can come back...More

I am sorry to say that the Trail is now badly in need of a visionary to upgrade it. We used to go round with our children in the 1980s, and things like The Chair and the deer in the swamp were interesting and inspiring....More
