Haywood Oaks and Blidworth Bottoms are a fave destination for lots of Notts doggies. There's plenty of romping space, and a friendly chatting space for post-walkies coffee and cake.

Yes, I agree with you 'Walking the Dog' - I tend to park in the other car park, not Blidworth Bottoms (bit of a clue in the name??) because of the men. Although it's more crowded, the Ravenshead Road is a lot more relaxed for female walkers.

I've been coming to these woods for years both for dog walking and horse riding. More recently the car park at Blidworth Bottoms (nearest Kirkfields riding stable) seems to be taken over by some very dodgy looking older men who don't get out of their cars...I don't know if the Forestry Commission can do something about this? It is very intimidating for female walkers and looks very suspicious!
