A sustrans track runs through this woodland, but away from that there are walks within the woodland.
The sustrans track leads down to Grace Dieu Priory, a 12th century ruin, which is open to the public and is interesting to walk round.

7 years agoThanks for sharing this, went there at the weekend -it was lovely and quiet!
7 years agoWhat a fantastic walk. The wood, the flowers, the stream, the waterfall, the dappled sunlight and then the priory. We will definitely be going back. Our dog loved running in and out of the stream for drinks and to keep cool. Thank you for letting us know about it.
7 years agoWe loved this walk with our three lively dogs - plenty of stream action and things to explore. It had the sense of being in a real forest feel to it, was quiet, with quite a dense tree canopy and an abundance of wild flowers and trees to identify. We were also delighted to come across the ruins of the priory. Very satisfying spot to find from this website and I am sure we'll re-visit, especially as there was a whole area we didn't get to see this time.
5 years agoBrilliant established woodland within the National Forest. Great for our dog Lexi who likes exploring and loves water. Great for nature lovers too and old priory ruins make a great picnic spot. Pub next to car park what more can I say. 9/10
4 years agoAbsolutely gorgeous place! It was about 30 minute drive from me but I wanted to take my 3 dogs somewhere new and they absolutely loved it!!! I have 2 spaniels and a Collie so it was perfect for them as they loved the woodland areas and the streams. We also saw the ruins which I thought were amazing. Wouldn't have found it if it wasn't for this site so thank you!!! :)
7 months agoLovely walking with the dog in these woods
