A great resource in the Loughborough area and a favourite of many to walk and relax. There are car parks at lower and upper beacon although you can walk between the two. Recommended!

Had been meaning to visit for a long time after passing the entrance a couple of times on business. Stopped at the top carpark and walked down to the lower carpark and return. Benches provided if you get a little tired on the return to the summit. Children's adventure play ground and safe environment for them to run around. Will... More

This park is delightful however, it loses a point because there is no where to get refreshments. Having said that, one can take a flask. Back to the park. Reasonable car parking prices, fab walk with our dogs this morning. Views are stunning. Its a shame there is livestock there from April 1st (or is this a joke😉) as there... More

Good parking, beautiful views. Information disc at the top. Simple. You can park near the top if you don't want to walk too much or take a longer stroll if it takes your fancy.

This place is so close to Bradgate Park, yet so understated. Having come across it on the National Forest website, I felt a need to take the family for a little trip. The site is beautiful with an excellent panoramic view from Bronze Age Hill fort, gets quite blustery up there so hats, scarves and gloves (and maybe a kite)... More
