  • Busy around the visitor centre but much quieter only a few miles from there. Take a map as no phone signal in most of the forest and remember some trails are shared by those on feet and those on wheel...  more »

  • Great for walking dogs, and photography, and cycling at any level with loads of different terrain in one route. Nice cafe with inside and outside seating, and staff in bike hire place helpful. Plenty of car parking and a nice little stream at back of car park for dogs to run in and clean off after, also a fav of toddlers. Parking charges but not excessive.
  • Great place for a day out with the kids. Or on bikes. Or on foot. Lots of play areas, cycle paths foot paths and bridleways. Great little cafe. Clean loos. And lots of trees countryside and wildlife
  • Lovely place for walkers and bikers, however too many dog owners allow there dogs to just run wild on the trails which is not only inconsiderate to others trail users, its just dangerous to bikers. We all want to enjoy the forest and that is fine but there either needs to separate trails for walkers and bikers or dogs should be on leads at all times!
  • I have been coming here as long as I can remember beautiful place. Great for families , walking , cycling etc. A local gem.
  • Come here quite regular to walk and ride on the bikes. Fantastic place to go and get some fresh air. Excellent trails if your into Mountain Biking. Kids trail is excellent as well. Well worth a visit.
