Lovely walk with a great cafe...

Really beautiful in the autumn colours and great views of around Alton. There's some shorter walks you can do with small children but beware it can be really muddy with a dog... read more

Really beautiful in the autumn colours and great views of around Alton. There's some shorter walks you can do with small children but beware it can be really muddy with a dog.... The Ramblers retreat is a fab cafe with converted sheds making lovely bolt holes for a family cream tea...

An amazing and unspoiled place for pleasant walks, with seats dotted around for chatting, while looking across amazing and breathtaking views of canopy below. Only 20 mins from centre of Stoke and some great local eateries withing 5 to 10 minute drive.

Lovely walks especially with your dog. Families with young children can relax and let them run and jump and let off steam. Lovely.

Nice place for a walk with a family or dogs, you can follow a chain of lakes up the valley. It has gotten a bit overgrown with himalayan balsam and rhododendrons. Could be a brilliant nature reserve with a bit or work.

Dimmingsdale has long been a favourite place to have a nice leisurely walk, a nice lake as well which used to supply water to the mill. Close to is the Ramblers Retreat which serves decent food!
