Expansive nature trail, and so great to have on the doorstep! You can go for an interesting walk or search for bugs or visit the woodland centre. Its really beautiful too.

We live backing onto these woods and walk in them daily (the pleasure of having a border collie) and you never get bored - there are three parts to the woods, and numerous little off-piste tracks that take you away from the bridleways. Not that there are many horses, anyway. You can stay in the woods and walk a few... More

Great woods for dog walking. On occasion friends have had problems with aggressive dogs/owners. There's a fab cafe with odd opening times/days.

A really beautiful ancient woodland which seems to weather the political changes well. Mature oak and beech trees, hidden bird reserve, lovely meadow, magical bridge over the Limb stream and routes up to the Round Walk. Collier's memorial in wood two, loads of archaeological treasures including Q-pits and a cobbled drag way. Fantastic for children and adults who want to... More

Went for lunch after visiting the nearby Abbeydale Industrial Village. Limited choice on menu but sandwiches very good. There is a full range of teas, coffees and other drinks. Service very good. Had a short walk in the woods after. Would have liked to follow a nature trail but time was limited.

Free parking. Well signposted paths. Don't have to walk for long before you can't hear the road and you are truly in a 'deep dark wood'! Frequently take my children there and they love to run. Occasional dog poo in the bushes unfortunately but not a lot- generally people pick it up. There is lots of variety in the flora... More
