Potentially one of my families favourite places to go! In this forest there are so many activities/ nature trails that you can embark on. There is a play trail with large wooden structures for the children to climb on including tunnels, fireman poles and towers scattered along the trail. The trail itself is pushchair friendly and ideal for bikes. You can choose how long or short to make your journey. Also, there is a large play area with wooden play equipment including a big pirate ship which seems to be very popular amongst budding young pirates. The other popular trails are the Gruffalo, Gruffalo's child and Stickman trail where you have to follow clues to find the characters listed above. There is an area that people have made dens with lots of sticks for you to make your own! There is a café which does tend to get quite busy so picnic is recommended and best of all you only pay for the parking! There is a Go Ape within the forest for an additional cost. Finally, there are bike hire facilities (however I must admit we've never used these)

Currently the play area is still shut but they have taken time to re paint some of the gruffalo models on the easy trail. There are many other trains to do as well but we just did the one. Cage is open currently for take away options but picnic advised with place or tables and grass to have it on. Really good den building area and lots of space to spread out and explore.

For starters, it's just so beautiful to roam beneath the trees and explore the trails. There are lots of different types of play area to keep the kids engaged and they're all made of wood so they're in keeping with the forest, which is really nice. The cafe has lots of space both in and outside and the menu is pretty decent too.
