“Nice bike ride with the kids!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed a relaxed ride with my 2 lads. Easy to follow directions - nice afternoon out! Playground near the car park if they have some spare energy.

“Some pleasant walks.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Salcey Forest is more than just the tree top walk. There are a few different trails you can go on, varying in distances from short, to a 6 mile trail. There is also a childrens adventure area, and a nice cafe.

“Walking for health”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Have walked here numerous times, usually with the grand children, but recently joined a group walking every Monday morning, and despite the mud, I am really enjoying it

“Average”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

A nice walk but nothing special at all. I must be missing something the people who give it 5 stars aren't. The tree top walk is good but takes 15 mins tops. .

Not very cleared marked and most of the sign were on the floor broken. No marker maps whilst walking round and maps at the cafe were £3.

We walked 6 miles and not a bin in sight! Oh yeah, and the toilets were unsavoury :o)

“Amazing tree-top walk”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The forest is lovely, but its high-spot (pardon the pun) is the quarter of a mile long treetop walk which ascends gradually till you are overlooking the forest. It is even possible with buggies and wheelchairs. The cafe in Salcey is great too.
