Would give 5 stars if we could have seen and printed a map of the walks before we went. I know you follow the coloured posts but you don't know where you are at and if you need to get back more quickly with children a map would help.

Lovely day out on our bikes, colour coded trails were badly marked out, but that made it more interesting to find out were our car was.
