Ecclesall woods are a great oasis of calm in the city. 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

Plenty of nice little walks in a great location. If toylike squirrels this is the place for you! Enjoyed the walk, looks good for dogs as well

I love running/walking through the woods here. It provides a great escape from the chaos of the city and gives you a sense of adventure! Be sure to wear boots you're prepared to get muddy!

We love these woods right on our doorstep. It's great to escape the hustle of Abbey Lane and Abbeydale Road for the peace and quiet of the woods. Admittedly some of the main paths are well trodden and can be busy especially at weekends but head off to the secondary paths and you can enjoy the solitude. When it's wet... More

As well as being a beautiful, sprawling expanse of woodland right in the heart of urban Sheffield, Ecclesall Woods is also host to an ancient neolithic standing cup and ring stone. It's not widely advertised but if you're interested you can google it and find directions online posted by my husband on Sheffield forum, the local online resource for all... More

Lovely place for a stroll on a sunny day. Have been many times and it is great to see it in all the different seasons. Take sensible shoes if it has been wet.

a place just to walk and relax. Just be careful you don't get lost. Numerous entry points. Probably could do with more parking spaces.

Not quite sure how anyone could rate this great little cafe as "awful?" Been here quite a few times now and never had a bad experience. The staff are really friendly, the homemade cakes are delicious and it's a great place to cool off after a long walk, run or cycle ride through Ecclesall Woods. I also drink a lot... More

Slightly hidden behind the sawmill, this little gem offers a welcome stop for coffee and really yummy home made cakes. There is cover if it is wet and water for the dog.
