A lovely place to spend an afternoon. There is many walks or if you prefer bike rides through the woods. Food is available in the cafe, and there is a childrens play area.

Lovely place, where you can choose the length of your walks. Shame that on our visit there were some very rude and unhelpful members of staff.

Fineshade wood can get very busy on weekends. Parking is not free but the trails are nice with the odd play area for the kiddies. It takes about 40 mins for a leisurely pedal around the biggest loop. For more adventurous mountain bikers you should...More
