This is an excellent place to walk your dog, with well laid out paths and a few signposts. Muntjack deer live in these woods. In the springtime it is particularly attractive with new green growth on the trees.

We love these woods, some great paths that include some very busy paths with lots of families, dog walkers and horses to some small paths that are much quieter with less footfall. Lots of nature to look at and admire.
