Marston Marsh

I love coming here with my little girl – this is a local walk for us and we visit here a lot. There have been huge improvements to the paths and gates over recent years and it’s now an ‘access for all’ route. However, I’ve had feedback that some pushchairs struggle on the stony path and it is too bumpy for some.

Cattle graze on the marsh between May and November, so if walking past them isn’t your thing, avoid those times!

I love walks down by the river and there are some great trees to climb too. My daughter is at an age where she really embraces her ‘Go Find It’ game that we bought her for Christmas – it’s such a simple way of making a walk really engaging.
