Just outside of Brigstock, a lovely little village near the town of Corby, is a gorgeous country park containing a large wood full of wildlife to discover.
Covering 15 acres of land, Fermyn Woods is a great place to bring the family for some fun or visit by yourself for a quiet day out in nature.
Walks and wildlife
Starting from the visitor centre, you’ll have a couple of options for walking trails.
You could do the forest trail which will take you around some of the historic woodland for about two miles.
Or maybe the woodland walk, which offers a shorter but slightly steeper walk with opportunities to sit and watch for wildlife.
Speaking of wildlife, keep your eyes peeled for all kinds of amazing animals. Fermyn Woods is home to squirrels, deer, and even red kites!
If you go to one of the fishing spots, you might even catch one of the many species of fish like carp or roach that live in the ponds here.
Near the fishing pond, there’s a great viewpoint that will give you gorgeous views around Brigstock.
Playing and snacking
There are lots of facilities at Fermyn Woods to make everyone’s stay memorable and comfortable.
There are a few play areas around the park where you can let the kids loose, and if you’re feeling peckish after your walk or you fancy a cup of tea to keep you going, the Skylark Café has you covered.
We know you’ll have a pleasant day out at Fermyn Woods, no matter your age or who you’ll bring.
Whether you love animals or nature, or you just want to have a great day outdoors somewhere where you can snack and play, this fantastic country park is sure to make everyone happy.
