A heathy area of conifers and broadleaves with open access and some informal parking. There are old growth pines and beeches as well as younger trees. A good starting point for walks in the surrounding area.

Visited Turkey Carpet today and must say it's an excellent area with an abundance of fungui. Top marks for Turkey Carpet. xxx
