We were staying at The Old Inn so this was a must. It took us about 70 minutes to do the round trip but we do walk quickly. You could easily do it in an hour and a half. It’s a fairly easy walk until...More

A lovely walk through the trees and by the river. It became quite steep in places, not easy for little legs, but was totally worth the climb. Stunning views. I would say that the path might not be suitable for anyone either with young children,...More

Setting off from the Old Inn this circular walk takes between 1 - 1.5 hours. Not overly challenging but very pleasant. Heading up the left side of the valley their a couple of bits which are not idea for small children or overly boisterous dogs...More

We had first walked through the arboretum, which was just lovely, and as it was a nice evening, decided to walk to the waterfalls, thinking they were just a short walk away. We set off, easy underfoot to start with, then it got gradually steeper...More

Though it's not clear from the sign, the information at the outset is that this is a 3.5km walk taking 1.5 hours. Three and a half hours is the time it takes for the round trip. It is an easy walk not requiring walking boots...More

Nice walk with the dogs. Good walking shoes or trail shoes helpful as the path can have some loose rock.
