A historic woodland with good trails for family days out
With walking trails, cycling, outdoor play and picnic spots, West Walk is the ideal family day out. At 350 hectares, it is the largest remaining fragment of the ancient Forest of Bere.
Set amongst the tall pine trees, our play area is great for keeping your children entertained. Including a balance beam and all-ability swing, swinging hoops, rotating climbing chimney and for the little ones, a giant sand pit and wooden playhouses.
Play together and create your own temporary woodland hideout – find your way to the den making area and see what adventure awaits!
There are two waymarked walking trails and many natural paths to help you discover West Walk on foot or by bike.
Barbecues are not allowed in our forest.
Please follow our forest code to help you enjoy the forest responsibly.
If you are visiting with your dog, follow our dog code, keep them under close control to help protect local wildlife such as ground nesting birds, and bag and bin your dog’s waste.
Like many catering companies that are feeling the impact of the rising cost of living, the new catering operator at West Walk has struggled in a challenging trading environment. As a result of this and staffing difficulties, they have made the difficult decision to stop trading at West Walk. We are sorry that some of our visitors will be affected by Seahorse Coffee Bar’s decision not to carry on trading at West Walk. We are focussed on developing an improved offer for our valued visitors.
