This is a natural beauty spot with both clean moors water and amazing woodland walks . In the summer it can become very busy and the lanes to access the area can be a bit daunting if you have to reverse but well worth the trip. There are also many dedicated cycle paths which are popular with locals and tourists... More

Located just outside of Plymouth. Ample parking and a variety of country/riverside walks. While there are no food vendors within the woods (to my knowledge), there are a number of pubs and restaurants a short drive away. Great place for a picnic and a trip out with either friends or any age children

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

First time back for me in many years and it was lovely to walk through the fields and along the river edge, I was with friends as they were walking their dogs and it was a great adventure for them. Will certainly be coming back here, very popular for cyclist, runners and the dog walkers and for those wanting an... 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.
