Love the cycle trails at Haldon which has really ignited my enthusiasm for mountain biking. Bought a pass so nothing extra to pay for parking. Great trails which are well marked out.

A hidden gem in the middle of the forest. You can enjoy a nice walk or a bike ride in the middle of the nature. Plenty of places to park your car.
