The woods are lovely all year round but especially in the spring when the blubells are in flower. The Woodland Discovery Centre is well worth a visit and has a cafe, woodland workshops and all sorts of family activities going on.

Wander in these woods and see fascinating lightly managed woodland with some wonderfull old trees, especially beeches and sweet chestnuts. Decaying trees are left standing or lying as nourishment for fungi, insects, bugs and spiders. Admire strange roots where earth has been eroded away and...More
