The Dingle is an ancient woodland site which was partly landscaped in the past with formal paths and a lake. Whilst the lake has gone, a number of exotic species remain, including copper beech. These, together with the small brook, slightly remote location and low visitor numbers, make it a particularly beautiful and peaceful place to visit.

The 325-yard linear path through the wood tends to get wet in sections throughout the year. A steep drop by the gate means that parking there needs care.
