A strange little place split between pine forest intersected by walkways and poor ground gorseland populated with wild ponies. Worth an absorbing hour or two wander. NB. Free to enter but a parking charge applies.

This is a lovely place to spend a few hours. Car parking pricey. There’s no drunks or youths that congregate here, so children and adults can enjoy the surroundings with no concerns. Always clean and tidy and well kept. Nice way to spend an afternoon...More

A short walk for Holt town centre and you can take a walk through a beautiful and peaceful wood - plenty of marked paths to choose from. Walk beyond the wood and there is another area to explore full of gorgeous yellow bloom and purple...More

We spent a good three hours here, really lovely to get in the shade! Perfect place to walk the dog. Various walks, well sign posted. Plenty of picnic tables scattered around, as well as benches to sit and watch the world go by!

Managed to loose three hours in this park, clear paths, good play park and with a nice small lake full of dragon flies. Beware of the odd adder, if you have dogs and small children.

Lovely walk, nearly dry underfoot now (late May). If you walk out on to the heath where the ponies graze, be aware cattle are on there too. You may not see them, but they do leave their deposits behind and some dogs find them delicious!...More

We've been coming here for years, lots of walks for children of all ages. A small park and a shop selling a few drinks too. For me it's the walks, so peaceful here. Have seen the ponies on occasion and the hornets nest last year...More
