Too busy for us when you’re walking down by the stream and quite difficult to park. Very dog friendly though and good for families.

Good family trail done with a 2 year old and a 8 year old. Little stream to walk in for kids and dogs. Wellies are a must especially for the farmers fields you have to cross. Good walk all together though.

I would expect this to be really lovely in summer to walk however was very treacherous through the farmers field and nearby pathways, cause of the weather. very busy at the weekend, with other dog walkers .

Great trail for a long flat walk, nothing too strenuous.

This is a great family and dog walk, the Fairy Glen is very picturesque with 2 little waterfalls, the pathing is well maintained, however, you will pass through muddy areas, especially the farmers field, but unsurprisingly so due to the rainfall this winter.

Went today (December) was very wet muddy and the field you have to cross is completely flooded although you dont no this till your ankle deep, good trail but if going with kids dress for occasion and take spare clothes, some steps are steep for little ones and sloppy so be aware of weather before you go
