I go to the woods several times a week and am amazed at how often I spot something different. There are ponds and streams; hills and valleys; many different species of trees and dozens of paths to explore, each of which gives you a different aspect and viewpoint. Can you find the ancient cup and ring stone? Did you know... More

We didn't realise such a beautiful, peaceful place was literally on our doorstep. We had a lovely walk among the bluebells of this ancient woodland today, followed by a lovely cake & cuppa at the cafe. We'd highly recommend a visit if you're looking for peace and tranquility just a stone's throw from the city!

Had an excellent long dog walk last Saturday through these fantastic woods just on the edge of Sheffield. And the best bit was coming across the cafe at the sawmill in the middle of the woods for a really great treat!

We set out from Forge Dam cafe and walked through Whitely woods for about half an hour, which was lovely, and walked as far as Shepherds Wheel, which has been renovated during the last year and stopped at the new tea/coffee van right by the side in the woodland setting. The van was under a Gazebo and there were several... More

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.

Great for dogs. Fab woodland café. Coffee is gorgeous. we come here a lot. It's easy to get lost so you need to refer to the signs.

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.
