    Fantastic walk we've been here a few times, it can be rather steep at times so mind your footing, lots of different roots for you and even more smells for your dog. When we went there was a fence that had ome down however that I think lead onto a private property so just be aware as there we will rabbits in there also.

    We love this walk. Ample free parking and large enough to spend hours walking the Dogs

    Very walk with lots of different paths and route to go all over the park, including wide open spaces. I would avoid the car park listed as not very big and difficult to get to on a narrow country road. Instead park in the nearby village of Horspath and walk across fields using public footpaths to get into the Shotover Woods

    Great walk with great views and ample parking, they even have an ice cream van in the summer months for a well deserved end of walk treat, gets very busy though.
  • We have walked at Shotover a few times, lovely scenery and miles of countryside to explore.
