Nearby forests

Pink and white foxgloves

Whether walking or riding, Hay Wood is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax.

As a peaceful ancient woodland site there is a great diversity of wildlife to look out for; foxgloves, bluebells, birds, butterflies, rabbits and Muntjac deer are just a few you could encounter.


River severn

Visit Shrawley Wood to see a spectacular display of bluebells in April and May.

Overgrown beech woodland

Arley Wood provides a quiet setting for a pleasant woodland walk in the Warwickshire countryside. 

The wood is part of a PAWS (planted ancient woodland site) restoration project, which means that it will become a native broadleaf woodland once again.

Winding path through the mature woodland

Wyre Forest is the largest woodland National Nature Reserve in the country and can be found to the west of Birmingham.

Explore the arboretum to find the unusual Whitty Pear and don't forget to refuel in our on-site cafe. Our Go Ape course will keep the kids (and adults!) entertained and we've even got a dog wash on-site to keep your pooch pampered.
