“muddy fun”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

I am lucky enough to have these woods nearby. A recent visit from my sister, my 8 yr old neice, 5 & 3 yr old nephews soon prompted a visit & much fun was had. Parking free weekends & bank holidays. If you don't want to spend lots of money this is perfect, don't forget your welly boots :-)

“Lovely woods on our doorstep”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Great for a bit of fresh air with animals or kids. Lots of logs to climb on and places to run about and let off steam. Can follow specific colour coded walks devised for the length of time it takes to do a circuit, but found this a bit confusing when walking around - have to know your way around a bit as woods are extensive. Childrens' play park is very good and a hot tea van near the entrance is very welcome after a bracing walk. Activities are planned in the summer months sometimes which is good - but the only down-side is pet walkers who leave the doggies' calling cards around for children to step in. Not the fault of the woods!

Great for pet walkers or cyclists or anyone who likes walking. The park is fun, even for those over 20 years old!

“Lovely woods”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Great spot, lovely to walk around; buggies able to follow paths. We took some family kids out with cameras and they loved it.
Lose one star for the amount of wasps near the (very well equipped) play park
