After discovering Hicks Lodge on one of my many cycle rides I told the family and guess where we all go for walks, cycle rides and a great cuppa and cake! It is part of the wonderful National Forest and everyone involved in making it happen should be very proud.

The location is great and the cafe is well stocked. The service always friendly and courteous.
Sundays open til 6 so if you start your walk or ride later than planned its not a problem.
Good coffees and teas and those cakes...... Mmmmmmm....

Really nice walks, good playground for the kids and an excellent dog friendly cafe. Older kids hired bikes for £7.50 for an hour which was enough time to get round the trails. Not much more to say except that it's really annoying that Trip advisor insists that you use 100 characters before they let you post a review. Anyway - the place is really nice for a day out so I would recommend it to anyone. More characters characters characters characters characters characters characters characters characters characters characters. Oh - and good cakes and coffee. Back to characters characters characters characters characters.

went here with my girlfriend and hired bikes to try out the trails. New to off road riding we tried the blue moderate trail, I was getting daggers in the back off my head most the way around as soon as the jumps and berms started. However there are more sensible family trails too. excellent bikes to hire and a good coffee shop.

Lovely setting, you can cycle, walk, bird watch, and eat cake! The cafe provides a welcome for you and your dog is welcome too! The staff are very pleasant and all the food is homemade. You can have a variety of coffees and teas.
