The woodland here is perfect for dogs to really let off steam and thunder through the trees at speed. Even on the hottest of days, the cooling canopy of branches provides shade and the leaf strewn tracks are kind to car-tired travelling paws.
Free car park. Picnic tables. Campervan access.
There are several clearly marked trails in these wonderful woods, and the trail markers are clearly visible from the second car park.
The Red route is about 2 miles (40 minutes), and the Green trail is just over 3 miles (90 minutes). If you have the time, a Blue trail is 7 miles.
The area is popular with local dog walkers, and there is plenty of space for dogs to play together comfortably.
Thanks to Dereth Heighway for telling us about this walk, and her pointers.

Beautiful Autumn Walk
Just finished this walk today. Our doggy absolutely loved it! Beautiful woodland walk with lots of things for him to sniff and explore. The signposts for the different routes could be a little better but even without following a specific route it was still easy to find your way around.

A brilliant place to have a break from M6 traffic (although lacks toilets). We started to follow the red route, lost the signs and made up our own route through the woods. Fun for dogs and teenagers.

This is one of my favourite places to walk our dog, she loves running through the trees and playing in the leaves in the winter!
