This place is one of our favourite walks with our large dog. She loves the forest and chasing the zip wires! Every walk is so varied too, it’s a pleasure. The railway cafe is a treat too

Lots of lovely walks however paper maps would have been a help as signing isn't good and the only map was in the carafe, we ended up photographing it. Cafe was good with variety of snacks and drinks.

We went to walk the dogs on a fairly flat path. There were not many marker posts marking the route so ended up doing a couple of bits twice. There are no bins and no doggy bins on the paths. Overall very disappointed.

Three of us made a trip to Delamere forest recently to do a 5km walk. Parking was simple. We parked near the cafe. The walk was reasonably marked. The walks were colour coded and easy enough to follow though there’s always a chance of getting...More
