Came here on the Tuesday over the Easter holidays relatively early in the morning and it was fairly busy. Had heard good things about cycle trails so we hired bikes through Quench cycles - a slick outfit- and went for a good ride through the woods along various trails. Throughout the ride there are jumping off points - play areas,... More

This is a great place to go for an afternoon outdoors. There is plenty to do for all ages and the Play Trail is a great way to get the kids to enjoy an afternoons walk in the woods.

Well worth a visit anytime of the year. Superb walks and specimen trees and plants. Activities available on site and a per car entrance fee makes it a very affordable day out.

The scenery and walks are amazing. The entry fee is very reasonable and per car not per person. Could do with clearer directions when walking especially if you have young children. Worth checking regarding wheelchair access prior to visiting.

We always go biking here usually on a family cycle but there are enough more challenging routes for the more adventurous of the party to go off and ecplore. For youngsters the plates are extensive and imaginitive.

We went around on our bikes on the family trial but at one point ended up on the red route!! We had gone the wrong way so we turned around and found the family trail again!! We loved our day out at Bredgebury and can't wait to go back again!!
