Looking for a quite walk? This is it. The Palladian bridge is as good in real life as it is in the pictures. If you an go, I'd recommend it. It's a little out of the way and takes some time, but very nice.

This is a National Trust operated site and offers some lovely views of Bath from its elevated position. Just be warned that if you are getting there from Batch city centre, or the railway station, it is a bit of a hike uphill!

My husband and I walked the Bath Skyline and chose to stop and visit this beautiful place. It is an absolute treat so relaxing, we had coffee and cake at the little refreshment area, which was lovely. Well worth a visit

Great trails around park with picturesque views with bridges and water also information dotted around with history of park which is quite interesting. Good coffee shop also on site. Reasonably priced easy to spend an afternoon here especially if weather is good.

Well worth a visit, busy at Easter with lots of children doing Easter egg hunt. We will revisit later in the year. Some of the terrain is steep and uneven. Amazing vistas well worth preservation and certainly worth the entrance fee. Work planned for this...More
