Fabulous place - excellent walks with lots to keep the children entertained. Large play structures, finding the gruffalo and all the characters and a very good play area. Lots of parking - you do have to pay but personally I think worth it for the...More

Alice Holt has lots of wide paths surfaced with hardcore/gravel, so the paths are usually dry. There's a good visitor centre and the catering facilities are well run and clean, serving good food at reasonable prices. Downside is that the car park fees are in...More

Yet another fun time with the family. Good facilities and trails always in good condition. Cafe breezy but okay. It’s just too expensive to park. A forest outing should be a relatively affordable experience for a family.
