I have been a visitor here since i was a child. They have lovely walks, the ruins of an old castle, trees to climb and adventures to be had. There is a duck pond and little rivers. My youngest thinks it's Duckland from the Peppa Pig cartoons and I don't really correct him. As a child I remember it been... More

Drum Manor is a great spot for walking and running. Good variety to the trails and great scenery. My friends and I use the park primarily for training as the Black trail offers a good level of difficulty but it is suitable for everyone and for walking and running. Take the kids and feed the swans.

Drum Manor is a beautiful place. For decades, I have been going there to walk my dogs and enjoy the 'managed wildness' of the estate. There are short easy walks around the landscaped gardens and ornamental ponds or longer walks through the woods and forest plantations. An hour at a fast pace would easily take you around the longest routes.... More

We arrived at the forest park after visiting the nearby (excellent) Wellbrook Beetling Mill. However, on arrival there were no staff there whatsoever, the place was completely deserted. We were able to open the gates ourselves and drive through onto the main camping area. Once there, again there was no-one about, however the doghnut rings around the entire area, litter... More

The forest is a really nice walk. Many types of surfaces so pushchairs and high heels will mean you do not get to see the nicer wooded areas. The lake looks beautiful but is quite stagnant so not a good idea to let your dog off for a swim or chase ducks. The parking area is close to a nice... More

We really enjoyed a visit here the end of July. Lots of open space, nice trails, and some unique spots - it was just a very relaxing and enjoyable time. The old castle ruins are quite interesting and some very old, wide, large trees that we don't normally see in our home area also captivated us. There were some swans... More
