  • Great place for long and short walks with the dogs. Love the many mosses and peat bogs.
  • Great for walking or bike riding in the forest, miles of forest roads and pathways, too big to get crowded. Car parks not cheap but good accessible paths for young kids on bikes or wheelchair access.
  • Good for family walking and taking the dogs
  • A very nice forest park with loads of trails. But, as a new visitor I found the signage very poor indeed. I struggled to work out my route and while I did try to find the car park near the visitors centre I gave up. Needs better info on website to guide you to the car parks and then I'm sure it would be a five star experience. If I ever go back I would aim to go to the car park near the Cafe, as I think thats also where the visitor centre is where the maps can be obtained, sadly they wont let you download them before hand ( unlike Coilte) Im not sure what its called but its off the B5152 not Ashton Road which is the section that I went to. Actually thinking about how long the walk was and how lost I felt at times I will probably not go back.
  • Delamere forest has several huge municipalities within a 30-minute drive, and suffers massive visitor numbers as a result. The areas around the main car parks and surrounding trails get extremely busy at weekends, and appear to be particularly popular with dog owners. Car parking can be very difficult. Away from the car parks, the stiff climb up through the trees to Pale Heights puts most casual visitors off, but more determined walkers are rewarded with fantastic views over several counties of England and Wales and, more importantly, relative peace and quiet.
