It's around the Hunsbury hill fort area, and has a steam train renovation area, with volunteers working during the daytime. The walk around the area is quite vast and varied, with different terrains to encounter. Good for parking and picnic areas.

Sorry only just seen. It's absolutely free. Great parking. The "drovers return" is small but welcoming. Chef / owner has great sense humour.
