This is a must visit as it’s totally free with ample parking.. Never busy here yet the views are amazing if the tower is open.. Great place to have a gentle walk with time to gather your thoughts.

Haldon belvedere or Lawrence Castle is located in higher Ashton and was built in 1788. It is a castle with a great tower in woodland forest surroundings and is sometimes used for weddings.
