“A high point in the Vale”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

On a clear day you get wonderful views, not just over the Vale of the White Horse but over into Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. A must for anyone living in or visiting Faringdon.

Autumn ( or the fall as we say ), what a great time to see this pleasant land. Views far and wide, calm and culture.

“dog walking and views”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

This woodland is great for dog walking. Paths all the way around and large field areas if you take your wellies. The views are brilliant. Lots of woodpeckers too!

“Beautiful views!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

Well worth a visit. Bear in mind though,there are at least 120 steps before you get to the top!! If you can do it though it is well worth the effort.

“beautiful views for miles around”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The were good paths around the site and little surprises so look out for - the crow, rabbit and a few other things hidden in the woods. Benches to sit on to enjoy the view and so peaceful
