  • Great walk. Be prepared to get muddy!! Love the mud... wellies, mud, woodland fun by the river. What's not to love with the family involving a skruffy 7 year old girl and a hairy muddy dog?? There is marked trails and points of intrest and sooooo many fairy doors. Carved creatures in the trees to spot and puddles to jump into too. And it's free. Result
  • Wonderful place! A bunch of different walks you can do, many wheelchair/pushchair friendly, with lots of break out areas for family picnics. Beautiful woods to spend hours wandering and exploring.
  • Great place for children to explore. Lots of different paths to take. If you are not a good walker stay on the designated paths as it gets quite rough and hilly. My grandson can't wait to return here.
  • Nice easy walks for kids and dogs. Rather than park in the visitors centre try the lay by opposite the Stannington turnoff (A1 southbound). Take the turn off and get back on the A1 southbound. The lay by is quite big. Park up and walk back up the main road about 200 yards and it is sign posted. It's busy on the road but once into the woods there is a lovely walk along the river. An impressive railway bridge on route.
  • Great place to explore seasons change the place. My girls love taking dog and horses there
