Went with a group of friends on the hunt for bluebells. A lovely wooded walk even though we didn't find many. There are a variety of lengths of walks to suit different abilities. Our group ranged from 50 to 75 & we all managed to...More

We arrived on a lovely sunny day. Luckily we found a parking space but parking we found limited. My toddler enjoyed walking around up the paths although it wasn't easy with the buggy going over the bumpy paths. If I had a dog it would...More

We walk here most weeks - it has everything you can wish to see. Buzzards flying over head, lots of birds for experienced bird watchers and the woods go on and on. It is a fantastic place to walk.

Mixture of gravel and dirt trails, wether your out for a stroll, walking dogs, bird spotting or mountain biking. Free car park.

Fantastic range of walking trails through a variety of habitats. Lots of fun too with a wide-angle lens, photographing glorious woodland at sunset & the archetypal red & white fly algaric mushrooms that were visible all along the tracks.

Since my last review and many emails with the owners, they have resurfaced the access road so that it isn't like a 4*4 assault course, more like a road. Much safer and less damaging on the poor cars! Well done!

I guess we walk here most weeks, with or without a dog in tow. We never tire of the variety of woodland, the well kept paths, wild orchids, butterflies and many varieties of birds here.

I want to give this a 5 star review for the beautiful woods and the nature but a 1 star review for the awful facilities. The entrance route, which is long, has the most awful potholes, in fact they are more like craters and I...More
