    We enjoy walking, and the walks were just what the doctor ordered. For those who are wildlife aware, this location is ideal. For those, like us, who didn't know about the secret beauty of North Essex, give this a go. If like me you are short, this wagon will give you no trouble. If you are taller and can remember to duck, go for it. If you are exceptionally tall, you should avoid staying here!! The conversion was fascinating and beautifully done.
