Burton Dassett Hills Country Park

Unspoilt, rolling hills – that’s what you will discover at Burton Dassett Hills. Whether you are walking, flying a kite or just sitting in your car, the magnificent views from these hills are breathtaking. The site comprises a series of rugged hilltops affording spectacular views in all directions and Fox Covert, a small woodland with a surfaced footpath. Opened as a country park in 1971, the 100 acres contain a wealth of historical interest such as the prominent beacon, quarry remains and the nearby 12th Century All Saints Church.

Burton Dassett Hills is open as normal with card payment parking machines. Visitors are advised to bring a debit card. There is no need to pre-book a parking space. Toilet facilities are open between 9:00 - 15:00.


  • Warwickshire’s Country Parks operates a cash-less car parking pay and display system to make it easier for visitors on arrival.
