Lovely walks, easy to forget your troubles! Some very steep parts to some of the walks. Disabled parking available by the estate office, allowing greater access

We did the Lady’s walk which was lovely but some of the climbs are challenging. No facilities apart from a loo at the car park. All dog friendly but watch out for the sheep.

Wonderful walks with great views - waterfalls, forest walks and opportunities to paddle. Walks are colour coded so it makes it very simple to navigate. The church is under-going some renovation so was not able to visit. The dog loved it!

This place was visited by myself and my wife, it took us roughly and hour or so. There are many steps some of which are steep so consider your level of activeness. The views also are magnificent.

Yes, very dog friendly with the styles that you lift up to let your dog through. We just went through one field with sheep , but off lead rest of the time and plenty of paddling opportunity for paws!
