Get back to nature and loose yourself in this ancient wood......well we kind of did and it was such fun. Starting off at first light, it took a wee while to get to where we wanted to be as the signposting is not the best...More

Visit Epping Forest regularly for long training walks as it’s the highest point in Essex. Plenty to see with Connaught Waters and all it’s wildlife. The forest actually stretches for miles and can look quite different with the changing seasons. Fun for all the family

Yes there are many dogs. For some reason I thought I answered this question. There are horses so careful at some path not to scare the horses.
