There are great views from the top. Interesting sculptures of animals to find which would make it interesting for children. The tower was not open on my visit.

Lovely walk, lots of hidden surprises for kids including a "secret door" giraffes and dens. Be careful of all the dog poo though. It's mostly out in the fields. There's a coffee shop up there on a Friday and Sunday I think which is nice.

I have visited the woodland many times and love it! A really nice walk up the hill and a lot of quirky things hidden in the forest for kids (and adults!) to find. It's a small circular woodland on top of a hill and you...More

Super place to walk the dog or go for a family stroll. It is an added bonus if the Folly Tower is open. The views are splendid.
