An ideal woodland for a great day out with walking trails, cycling and picnic spots

West Walk is an ideal wood for a complete day out for all the family with walking trails, cycling and picnic spots. With 350 hectares is the largest remaining fragment of a former medieval hunting ground, the Forest of Bere.

There are two waymarked walking trails and plenty of natural paths to help you discover West Walk on foot or by bike.

Try the Forest of Bere trail. Walk or cycle the 3-mile trail which takes you in a loop, through the historic landscape of the Forest of Bere, which today supports an important range of wildlife.

Our play area is great for keeping your children entertained. Set within the Pine trees with play equipment such as climbing frames, scramble nets and swings. (currently not open)

There are two Barbecues available for hire with prior booking. (currently not open)
