  • Visited Friday with my children. The main route in was closed, so we had to walk along the road instead. We walked along the river. Unfortunately there are no proper paths, so it was incredibly muddy, which was a shame as it would have been a nice walk otherwise. If you do visit take wellies and be prepared to carry smaller kids as it gets very slippery, especially in the woods. Also note that a lot of the grounds are closed due to landslides, so there isn't much to it at present. The National Trust should really update the app as it didn't mention any of this and the sign should be on the parking machine as I'd paid for parking before realising it was partially closed.
  • This is a great place to go for a walk to escape out build up world. The further you get from the car-park the less people are around. Go early and you'll see some of the local Roe Deer population. Paths are mostly good but it can be muddy in places if we've had rain.
  • Nice area but weather has closed or diverted the walks and it was extremely muddy underfoot. Some advanced notice on their website would have been appreciated.
  • Great walks lovely scenery
  • Plankey Mill a once popular camping site on the River Allen, the landowner sadly never renewed the farmers licence for camping. The location is still a beautiful forests area with numerous tree types and lots of walks along the river and some on the east side near Allen Banks up to the old ponds.
