So this is one of our favourite local woodland to go for a walk. There are plenty of dog walkers, and dog poo (especially stinky near the car park), but things do improve once you get past the car park. it has also been named as one of “the” areas in Bicester of dogging, though luckily we have never come across any (and hopefully never will)
I have never come across such beautiful teepees ⛺️ anywhere else. Not only are they beautiful, my son attempts to climb some and also always tries building one (unsuccessfully) when we are there. There are tree to climb, huge fallen tree trunks to peep into, various species of mushrooms/mosses to spot, lots and lots of cones to collect and a wide variety of wildflowers, dandelions & bluebells depending on the season. There was also a wooden (not very stable) swing.
The place is famous for its bluebells. See our post HERE
The walk is not very long, so perfect for short legs
