Cardinham Woods is a forest of over 230 hectares (650 acres) in the
beautiful valley of the Cardinham Water river. There are four way
marked walks of between 3 km to 7.5 km. The Lady Vale Walk (3 km)
is suitable for all abilities and was one of the first walks to be
awarded Millennium Miles status by the Fieldfare Trust. There is disabled
access to all our facilities. there is a picnic area with barbecues
at every table, public toilets and a children's play area.
Cardinham Woods is a popular destination for cyclists of all kinds.
Cycling is permitted on all the many miles of gravel tracks, so whether
you want to ride gently beside the river, or try a more adventurous
route on the steep valley sides, you will find the right conditions
at Cardinham. We do not offer cycles for hire.
