"My wife and I were fortunate to visit during good weather (it had been constantly raining previously). A beautiful location with two different walks both of which are quite easy and take approximately 1 hour. If you time the walk correctly you will see the Severn Valley steam train pass in the valley below. There is a small play area for the children and also a fairy trail where they have to find the fairies and their respective tree names."
