This walk is potentially one of the best I have been on in the south! Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. You get a real sense of the great outdoors and being with nature! Its very peaceful! Highly recommend.

Absolutely perfect walk with a lovely cream tea as a reward. Be prepared it’s a little hilly but so worth it.
