  • I 1st started walking round here about 30 years ago and it’s still a lovely walk. Nice place to take the dog for a walk, it’s a shame the moat house was fenced off last time I went

  • Nice quiet walk in the woods. The footpaths were well maintained with a group of volunteers clearing away a fallen tree as I was there.

  • Absolutely beautiful nature reserve that offers something new with every visit. The Bear nature trail is just delightful and a lovely way to explore the forest. The Moated Manor is also a lovely point of interest. The Acorn trail offers stunning vistas....look across for horses and rolling hills, look down for incredible parasol mushrooms, acorns and lakes and look up at the towering and magnificent trees. This is an area that is well loved and looked after and it is the ideal place to meander, explore and soak in the nature that is so good for our souls. Fully recommend.
  • I visited here in May 2022 as part of walking the London Loop route around London. This is a large area of countryside to explore, but some of it can be hard to navigate.
