Had a lovely day. Good long walk to burn off the children's energy. Lots of photo opportunities with great landscape and views. Park area for children very good. Well maintained.

We usually walk our two dogs around the beacon. Great Views of the local area. You can cycle or run round if you so wish. Great for kids to explore, especially the area near the lower car park.

With a little bit of determination you can get a pushchair round the paths heading up and down from Beacon Hill. There are car parks at the top and bottom of the woods and there are toilets. Charges were very reasonable. We like the view...More
