Being National Trust members means we are often ticking off places from the book, and finding new places to visit. Devils Punch Bowl had been recommended to us by our friends who love it there.
With lots of routes to explore, from woody paths, to high up paths, there is something for everyone.
When we arrived it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the sun was shining properly for the first time this year, and it was so nice to be able to go for a walk without togging everyone up with woolly items! We even took our coats off at one point! So of course it was quite busy with parking, one in one out.
Then we were greeted with this view……
I wanted to get exploring along that top path, however the kids wanted to take the path down into the forest and the bottom of Devils Punch Bowl.
If it has been raining it will be muddy, so do wear suitable shoes. I had my walking boots on which I needed as it is quite uneven ground too.
As we went along the paths we had no idea where we were going, but we found a perfect spot to have a little picnic.
With the sun shining on us, it made me realise how much I have missed the sun and warmth and I cannot wait till the summer arrives!
The kids were so happy running around, playing hide and seek in the heathland,. They found places to climb on, and places to rest!
As I wanted to take that path along to the top to see the views, we took a path that took us upwards…..didn’t know where we were going but hopefully up to the right bit!
We made it! This path was much more muddy! However it was worth it for the views, you can really see the ‘Devils Punch Bowl’ up here.
It is well worth a visit. As you can see from the map below, there are different paths to take all over, so we can explore different ways each time.
