We used to love this place but it is being commercialised beyond belief. We are regular visitors and always pay the £4 parking charge. However on visiting on New Year's Day it was so busy there was not a free parking space to be had....More

Fineshade wood can get very busy on weekends. Parking is not free but the trails are nice with the odd play area for the kiddies. It takes about 40 mins for a leisurely pedal around the biggest loop. For more adventurous mountain bikers you should...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.
