Regularly walk on May Hill with my two dogs. Breathtaking views across two counties.......a place to blow the cobwebs away. Take a picnic on a sunny day and sit on one of the benches. Take in the views and let your worries fade away. Even in winter it's a great place to visit but be aware that to reach the... More

Walked up here on a sunny afternoon. Didn't get to see any wild ponies or rare breed cattle but did enjoy stunning views and peace and relaxation at the top.

We look at this hill from Selsley hill STROUD a lot as well as other parts of Gloucestershire. It's a steady walk up to the Trees on the hill through woods and field where you come into contact with horses and highland cattle. Parking is restricted. Dog walkers clearly use this as good exercise. Once at the top amongst the... More

Stunning view. Very good for hikers and nature lover. Have been there in evening time . Spectacular view of sorounding counties. Its flat on the top just sit between the trees and enjoy the sunset. Some horses and cattles gazing give its more natural touch

May Hill stands out for tens of miles around. A round hill, surmounted with a clump of trees reminiscent of something from Narnia. Parking is free (or at least where we stopped) and the view from the top is just magnificent. I've viewed this hill for years, but finally made the trip up on a bright, cold day when the... More

A 4.5 mile round trip from The Farmers Boy Inn to the top of May Hill, through the bluebell woods, swathes of wild garlic, National Trustland ponies and the most far reaching views - will return with my daughter and a picnic!

On a clear day the views from the top are breath taking. A gentle walk to the top with 180 degree views. Well worth a visit and follow up with a meal at The Glass House Inn in Clifford's Mesne.

If you have legs, a heartbeat and you are passing through the area you must see the view. Gradual hills, clearly delineated path and a forest of pine trees at the top that can been seen for miles. You can see the same from the top. Really wish they had a loo up there though. Well done National trust. Charming... More
