This is a beautiful place for a dog walk. Especially beautiful when the blue bells are out although the dog has to go on the lead in the bluebell wood. Lots of photo opportunities

Love walking in the woods at Heartwood. You walk in and out of woods into orchards into grasslands.You meet friendly walkers and their four legged friends (dogs and horses :)). Great views too! Love it!

We are really lucky as we can walk to the forest from our home. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility and it is lovely to see how it is expanding and maturing. Well worth a visit.
