Nice visitors centre and some parking. Good marked pathways so you can do a short or long walk. Lots to see, full of wildlife and bluebells. Very interesting history, well worth a visit.

Visited today with 4 young children. We had a great day. There were lots of activities, stalls selling things and hot food. The woods are beautiful and an absolute hidden gem. We were so impressed with the efforts of rangers and other staff we joined...More

Discovering Sheffields woodlands changed my view of the city many years ago. Ecclesall woods remain a favourite. The woods are large enough for you to find solitude but with well marked paths. The woods this month are full of Bluebells and an ever growing verdant...More

I attended the introduction to Blacksmithing day-long course. Fay was the organiser - very welcoming and professional.

I could spend all day walking around these woods listening to the birdsong. Even after the recent poor weather the bulk of the paths were in good nick and one of the beauties of these woods lies in the trees themselves. They have such character...More

You must visit! There are multiple trails, all of which are clearly marked and signed so you won't get lost. Some people go running, others stroll and many are armed with bikes or prams. There's something for everyone.
