Plenty wildlife to see including red squirrels and water birds . Some lovely walks for all levels of fitness though take care in wet weather. Would have given it 5 "stars" had there been a cafe for a cuppa!

A stroll through these woods is always a pleasure at any time of the year. Plenty of wildlife if you keep your eyes open and many varied views for the artist or photographer.
