We went along this lovely short walk with friends and loved it. It’s a good length for toddlers and, although the path is quite stony in places, it’s nice and flat so most pushchairs should cope with it. The bluebell carpets in the woods were lovely and the woodland walk was gorgeous with the sun streaming through.

It’s either a circular walk if you walk back along the Buxton Road (paved) but you could easily go back on yourself and it would be just as pretty in reverse, especially if you want to stay away from the road. Great for the bluebells and apparently blackberries later in the year! And fab views across the valley and planes taking off which our little lady loved! Just be sure to follow the permissive path signs.
