  • We went with our grand daughter for a walk, it was nice for children who are 3 or above to walk around, would be nicer if there was some things put in place to compliment the name of it but still a ni...  more »

  • This is fantastic place, set within beautiful country side. The walk itself is quite steep in parts, but a leisurely pace it can be done in just over an hour. My favourite time to visit is spring , when all the blue bells and wild garlic are in full bloom. The place feels almost magical, Hence the name. The waterfalls are only small but still a sight to see. All in all this is one of my favourite places to walk my dogs.
  • Beautiful little hidden treasure, just off the side of a main road there are a few parking spaces on a lay by directly opposite. Just before it is a cute little unit you can purchase some eggs from with an honesty box to leave your money in. It's a great place to take the dogs for a quick 30 minute - 1 hour long walk, loads of different routes to take and even has a couple of rope swings. It does need a couple more bins as people selfishly leave rubbish in a few places but overall it feels well looked after. We even spotted some fresh gold fairy dust.
  • Lovely walk through the Glen and sometimes if you are lucky you can see that the fairies have been spreading glitter. The kids when younger loved paddling in the streams. Lovely at the moment with the blyebells coming out and the smell of wild garlic.
  • A peaceful & picturesque spot of natural beauty enjoyed by walkers & people who love the great outdoors. However, due to its name, or possibly its location, this place is frequented by non-educated-delinquents, jeremy kyle contestants & inner-city council estate brats with no respect for other visitors, nature, nor the outdoors,. They hang around in one location being loud, disruptive, dropping litter - fully grown adults (women) openly carving their names into trees for their brat-kids. When challenged, they completely fail to realise that this behaviour is entirely out of order. Not only is it an eyesore for other visitors, it damages the tree bark & it stops it from carrying nutrients up to the branches, fungus & disease gets in & the tree can die as a result. What would happen if everybody did this? Teaching this behavior to kids is quite simply unforgivable. You might expect it from scally teenagers on the local council estate, not from adults in an area of natural beauty. Leave only footprints & take only photographs. Stay at home hanging around shops next time please, ChavScum are not wecome in the countryside.
  • Enchanting place to be ,went to see the bluebells and the waterfalls was not disappointed , nice walks through the woods , plenty people out walking but didnt feel overcrowded
