A great place for walks and cycling with plenty of routes. My only complaint is the car park charge. Good value if you are there all day but if you just want to pop in for a short 30 min stroll it's overpriced.

Moors Valley is one of my favourite spring/summer visits. I’ve been here many a time from a young age. The parking is quite pricey, but reasonable as it’s free to get in. Plenty of walks and bike rides, with plenty for kids to do also.
