“Lovely afternoon spent with the children and dog at May Hill. Nicky Cross' direction were spot on not sure we'd have found it otherwise. The view we're amazing.”

- Tristy Oliver

“Had a great day out yesterday, although I had n't taken enough notice of directions thinking the ones of the PDF printout of the walk route would be enough, only to find ourselves driving round and round trying to find the common, did n't realise there would be such a maze of roads around there, eventually found it thanks to a man walking his dog. Definitely will go again now we know the way, preferably on a cloudless day to make the most of the incredible views. Had a really good lunch at the Yew Tree Pub as well.”

- Nicola Giles

“I've just come back from a lovely couple of hours here with my Dalmatian and my mam's Basset Hounds. The views are spectacular and the walk itself was really enjoyable for all involved- plenty of open space for my boy to run and plenty of shrubbery for the Bassets to sniff at! The advice and directions given by reviewer Nicky Cross above are absolutely spot on- thanks! We'll definitely be going back soon.”

“Nicky's Favourite Walk - May Hill (Our guests love this walk) From Wharton Lodge Cottages by car, turn left onto the A40 toward Gloucester. After the Farmers Boy Pub, take the second turn left called Barrell Lane with a letter box on the corner (the first turn left is a very, very small lane). You will go under a small bridge then follow this road for ½ mile then take the first turn right. The road starts to climb. Take the first turning left and follow along this road over a cattle grid and you will see a dirt lay-by on your left, park here. The walk starts opposite and head for the coppice of trees.. From the top of May Hill you will see across several counties. Good pubs to visit either the Glass House (dog-friendly in garden) or the Yew Tree (dog-friendly in pub) both very near May Hill. This is a great walk and well, well worth the climb to the top for the amazing views..... ”
