This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Mobility Scooter
It is not large so makes a good short visit – there is a circular route which takes you past a couple of ponds as well as through the woods, full of rhododendrons and azaleas and for the able-bodied, there’s a bird hide up some steps. There are plenty of benches and carved posts showing you the wildlife to look out for (we spotted a couple of bunnies as well as hearing loads of birds and very clearly, a cuckoo!) as well as information boards about the wildlife and the history of the place. The YWT also manage nearby Askham Bog .
Transport & Parking
Parking is by the roadside outside the gate – there is space for about a dozen cars and the road is quiet so it was all perfectly easy.
In very wet weather I can imagine Moorlands would be very muddy but despite the morning’s rain, when we went it was just damp albeit with a few easily-avoided puddles. The path is mainly just earth: a little uneven in places but nothing drastic, largely flat and with room for passing. The main obstacle is a kissing-gate at the entrance, (see my photos) but I was able to negotiate it with a three-point turn. (OK, maybe slightly more than three!)
No toilet facilities available.
