This is one of the most beautiful spots in Plymouth, a huge woodland with small beach area and lovely walks to viaducts and along the river. It can get very busy in summer (to be expected for somewhere so pretty and free!) But it it really worth visiting if you come to Plymouth

This is a lovely walk through the woods and along the river. You will find industrial heritage in the form of superb viaducts arching across the valley and the large waterwheel pit from the old slate workings. In season Peregrin facons nest in the quarry. It can get crowded and if you walk along the old rail way cycle trail... More

I grew up near Plym Bridge forest and spent many happy days here during weekends and school holidays. The lane that runs from Coypool to Bickleigh is often used by cyclists but there are other paths through the forest where some degree of solitude can be experienced even during the height of summer. The river is exceptionally cold all year... More

Very nice place to walk and great with the dogs - lots of bikes as well so need to pay attention. Could do with somewhere doing hot food in this weather though.

A lovely and tranquil place, ruined by a sea of dog mess and aggressive cyclists. You can walk up an old railway line and the scenery is stunning and its very close to plymouth. Unfortunately this is where all the council house people from nearby, take their dogs for a crap. The place is AWASH with dog mess. I am... More
