OPEN:

This circular walk across the dry, sandy trails of lowland heathland is generally mud-free* and is therefore a great option for a short family walk. Simply follow the beetle way-marks from the car park. The trails are narrow and (in our opinion) not suitable for pushchairs.

Whilst dogs are welcome, it is essential that they are kept on a lead or on the path from March to September. The three key heathland birds: woodlark, nightjar and tree pipit, all nest on the ground, making them vulnerable to disturbance by dogs running free.  

*There are a few areas which can get water-logged and muddy in winter.
