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.
