Had reserved a table as it was a busy bank holiday weekend. Staff were great, food was lovely nice wine on special and all reasonably priced. We all had roast beef, beautifully cooked with plenty of fresh veg, nice gravy. Good choice of delicious desserts.

Had a lovely walk from Langdon Hill car park. Pretty woodland walk with bluebells. Short climb up to Golden Cap well worth the magnificent views

Parked in NT car park in nearby woods and completed a circular walk taking in the NT tea room where 2 delightful volunteers entertained us whilst we had a hot drink and a snack. The walks are beautiful and the views stunning.

As part of a walking tour we crossed the estate. The walking routes are well signposted. The views are great and the tracks are well maintained.

Getting up there can be a big challenge but it is totally worth it. Once you are up there you will get an amazing view!
