“One of Sheffields great assets ”
Review of Ecclesall Woods

Ecclesall Woods
Ranked #9 of 183 things to do in Sheffield
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 May 2018 via mobile

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 canopy. Well worth a visit

Well worth a visit for a short or lengthy walk, with a variey of birds, bluebells in season, attractive stream/small river and well-marked paths

A delightful place with well-marked paths, friendly faces and free amenities. Parking is available either on the road or in their free car park. Several accesses are available for walkers, all clearly signposted with the toad name destination. This was a great choice for our dog on the hottest day of the year: lots of cover, an ambling stream for her to play in and adjoining fields to run round. Only downside is if man’s best friend has a call of nature, the only bin we could find was back at the start, near the cafe.
Lots of seating at the cafe, good choice of food and drink for all.
Must remember this is here and visit more often!

I attended the introduction to Blacksmithing day-long course.
Fay was the organiser - very welcoming and professional.
David and Iain were the course tutors - knowledgeable, skilled, plainly experienced, inspirational, relaxed, humourous, patient and approachable.

Two items made at a relaxed pace.
This course is really suitable for both men and women - it all technique and not hard work.

Well done David, Iain and Fay!

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 and age, this is not a manufactured wood but one formed naturally over years and years.
The fenced off bird sanctuary in the woods offers protection from enthusiastic dogs and we were lucky enough to see a good number of herons which are nesting in the tree tops.
Rounded off with a cuppa and cake at the cafe in the middle of the woods - perfect!
