This is a small mixed plantation with an extensive network of forest tracks. There are also some smaller paths, some mature and deciduous areas and a few small hills (one hill has a particularly unusual feature on top). Felling in recent years has largely removed the blocks of runnable forest and the area is now therefore only suitable for introductory use where courses are largely confined to the path network. It is however still a pleasant spot for walking or cycling on the track network.
