Great for hiking, biking, walking, fishing, boating, canoeing, bbq'ing, climbing, exploring, touring, learning, scouting, filming, sleeping, eating, relaxing, and just having a great time with family and friends. Very easy to forget the worlds rat race in this small piece of heaven.

The Sculpture trail, at Beechenhurst, is a great walk for kids. It's quite long, but there are short cuts back to the lodge if the children get tired. A map/guide can be bought from the café. Or RSPB Nagshead at Parkend... More
