Time flies by at a place like Idless Woods. One blink and the kids you used to bring here are now adults.
Perhaps this spot was a regular place for playtime but now you use it to bond and connect. Although you're creating different memories, you're still sharing a wonderful bond and the wood opens its arms, the tall trees welcoming you back as if you're an old friend who wants to catch up.
Arrive here in the early morning and witness the beautiful sunrise together as the birds start to tweet in this stunning woodland.
Bring the family to this wonderful place
You'll enjoy driving along beautiful country lanes past the Daubuz Moors Nature Reserve to reach Idless Woods.
The scent of nature offers the first clue of a gorgeous day in store as you pull up at the free car park, eager to get out and explore.
Kick off the adventure
We'd highly recommend grabbing a bite to eat at the Woodman's Cabin cafe before you start your adventure.
The wonderful service will definitely make you want to come back again as you fill up on a delicious English breakfast, spotting the lovely bluebell flowers all around you. And if you catch sight of the cakes they've got on offer, we can guarantee you won't be able to resist.
You'll hear whispers of fallen autumn leaves fluttering in the breeze as you use your navigation skills on the orienteering routes, that offer a variety of paths for different abilities.
Whether you're a beginner or an expert, you'll be able to download an orienteering map for free from the British Orienteering website and get stuck in.
Let this forest be part of your life while creating amazing memories together. Maybe take a photo of yourself and your little one beside the big old trees, and come again in the next few years to snap another shot.
Can you see the change?
