Why we love this walk?

Eycott Hill Nature Reserve is a magical place for your little ones to explore, we followed the Tale Trails map The Raven of Eycott Hill and it captivated all my children’s imagination. Please do scroll down and download this map if you are visiting, my little ones loved hiding from the troll and looking out for Mungo’s Marsh.

Please note sturdy walking boots or wellington boots would be recommended as the ground is uneven and can be very wet and boggy in places! We managed a two mile walk however, you could explore this walk whichever way you fancied – there really is no right or wrong. We were so lucky that when we visited there was SNOW! If we happen to get a flurry of snow again then I would highly recommend coming to explore the snow hills of Eycott Hill.
