If your looking for somewhere different that's free (bar parking) and safe to let your children run off and have fun then I'd highly recommend this park. With such a lovely play area and cafe you can't go wrong. Then take a stroll around the...More

A loebly place to walk or cycle around with dedicated cycle routes. Parks and cafe available. If you want to visit regularly, but a yearly car pass, which is brilliant value for money.

It may sound like a silly reason to score a place poorly but when you are a responsible dog owner well placed bins make or break a walk. This was my first visit to Fineshades woods. I was more than happy to pay for the...More

Good day out if you enjoy walking or cycling. It is also good for dog walkers although its disappointing to see no dog bins or refuse bins. When having a picnic there is nowhere to dispose of your rubbish. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys...More

Fineshade is a nice location for several well signposted walks, and caters to a basic mountain biking audience with several trails (easy blues). Mainly though you'll see dog walkers and families. There's lots of parking at a reasonable price (£1.50/hour or £4/day), and there's a...More
