Great place to walk the dog and thrilling to see herons flying around their nests. Happily surprised not to see much dog poo as we can only find one poo bin near the woodland centre on that side of Abbey Lane, though the other side is better supplied.

A great place to visit with kids and dogs, with various pathways. You can click some beautiful photographs. It is quite far from the city center, but definitely worth a visit, if you are a nature lover.

Don't be put off by the negative comment! This is a small outdoor cafe which offers a great service for the size of its premises. The drinks are excellent. Loose tea particularly good and sometimes comes with lovely China cups. An excellent latte and soya milk is always available. The small choice off sandwiches is impressive. The best hummus and...

Went today for a walk with my husband was a really nice walk. Well signed with different walking trails. A lot of dogs which are not on leashes which could be a problem with those who aren't comfortable around dogs.

Just off abbey dale road they are easily accessible from the west side of town and you don't have to go very far in to feel a long way from the roads and the city. There are several well marked paths and bridle ways, plus lots of minor paths... More
