“dog walkers paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

love walking the dog here, squirrels are great to see running up and down trees, kids love to run and climb, horse riders can be grumpy at times or the ones i have come across normally moan as my dog barks at the horses and wants to play.

“Make sure you take peanuts for the squirrels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Belfairs woods has acres of woodland, including nature reserves where you can spot deer and badgers if you are careful. It also has two kids playgrounds - one with conventional swings and rides close to the main road and another within the woods which is a beautifully built wooden play "fort" and assault course which kids can climb all over.

If you take little ones to the latter feature recommend you nip into the pet shop in the parade just up the road from the stables and buy a bag of peanuts. The squirrels are so tame at the fort that they will come and take the nuts out of kids hands, which can provide hours of entertainment for them.
