Purely by chance we happened upon Wilderness Wood when driving through looking for somewhere to walk our dog. There was loads going on, plenty to see and do, loads to keep kids entertained, and most importantly many great trails through the woods. Really reminded me of scout camps long ago, wood crafts and camps and other activities. I would be... More

Attractive place to meet friends for a coffee. The menu is limited so would not be in a hurry to return for anything except a coffee.

A family outing to collect a tree which had been reserved several weeks ago. Wilderness Wood is a fascinating place to visit, especially for children who can explore the great outdoors, enjoy refreshments and "home made" cakes etc. in the café. Also for sale are hand made "artisan" items and many other organised events are advertised. It is just al... More

We visited here with friends and children who ranged in age from 3 to 9. Having never been here before I was unsure what to expect but as it turns out we were in for a truly magical day. We were blessed with perfect autumnal weather when we visited, but weather aside we couldn't of asked for a more back-to-nature,... More

Simple place with easy to follow walks through the healthy woodland. Various hide-aways, wooden statues etc around the walk. Back at base there is a great mud kitchen for the little ones as well as swings, teepees to explore and picnic tables. The cafe also does good food there. Highly recommended for family few hours of natural fun and getting... More

Have been here before and love it - it's a really beautiful place to walk and very well looked after - there was only one thing that I think would be good for them to change ..... After a very long walk we went into the cafe to have some cake and tea - the cakes all looked absolutely delicious,... More
