The walk has just a few steady climbs and descents. There are no stiles but many kissing gates and a few steps. The paths are a mixture of stone, tarmac and grass, some of which will be muddy after wet weather. The walk passes through a large horse paddock so take care with dogs at this point.

Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.
