Excellent woodland area, especially for walking with children or dogs ! Beautiful bluebells in May and a great double decker bus cafe at weekends.

Good place to take a dog. Ideal for walking in the woods. You can keep to the main tracks or go along the smaller tracks. Always something different

Stayed locally in the village of Quorn and found this place nearby. Lovely quiet woods that have paths so even in the recent bad weather the walk was manageable under foot. Cheap parking at £1 a day.

A lovely circular walk with great views of Loughborough. With Bradgate park and Beacon hill nearby, the outwoods gets easily overlooked. Lots of old and interesting trees, wildlife and geology. It is muddy and hilly though.

Only been there once, did get a little off track at some points, due to the path being extremely muddy. However is a great place to take the dogs for a walk, due to parking only being a pound all day. Would go again.

From the football/cricket ground on Nanpantan road you can walk up the fields on the footpath into the corner of the outwoods and then walk all through it. You then have the same walk back so get on them there walking boots
