The cache is adjacent to a public footpath. A kissing gate and a stile have to be negotiated and you will usually find that horses will want to follow you. They are very friendly so no need to worry. There is a pond close at hand so children should be watched at all times. There are usually 3 geese around the pond area. These are also frindly although a little noisy at times.
Please make sure that the cache is well covered before you leave as there are sometimes dog walking muggles about.
