“Peace and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Visited on a sunny Saturday and was pleasently surprised to find it almost deserted, the dog enjoyed running free in the woods (and finding all the available mud) and we enjoyed seeing the masses of butterflies (even in March) and the peace and quiet even relatively close to the busy A46.

“Good hours exercise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Found this walk via TA. As neither our friends or ourselves are local and we wanted somewhere to meet and go for a walk, it would have been pot luck had it not been for this recommendation.
Was concerned about the parking particularly in relation to breakins but although there are only approx. 12 spaces and it is abit muddy when wet the carpark appears well used and as safe as any these days.
There is a circular path round the periphery of the wood (approx. 3 to 4 miles) and despite the rain the whole distance was covered without getting muddy shoes as the path is gravelled.
It took us slightly more than an hour at a brisk walk to go right round and no doubt once Spring is fully upon us the wood will be a pretty spot to tarry.

“A great short walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

This is a circular walk through woodlands which are really well maintained and the pathways aren't usually too muddy. The woodlands very from pine to deciduous and at the right time of year you can see wild orchids, there is also dear to be seen. The parking is not very good though and the drive to it is rarely cut back so you risk scratching your car.

“Better than yoga!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

Its such a beautiful walk with beautiful scenery and a great place to make your long walk with the dog interesting. With so much wildlife to be seen its a beautiful place to get away from it all and really frees your mind from everyday stress. Definetaley worth a walk.
