Salcey Forest – A Great Fun Day Out

Before  Days Out Now, search engines like Google were the ONLY hope we had to find exciting new days out. (Don’t worry though Google, we still need you to find our website!)

Who doesn’t love to stretch their legs, surrounded by woodland and fresh air?

Well – at Salcey forest you can do just that! It’s is located between Milton Keynes and Towcester off the M1 & A508. £4 covers the car Parking and that is all you need to spend!

Every time we go for a long walk now my kids think that were embarking on an adventure to find MONSTERS!

Of course dogs and YOUR little MONSTERS are allowed as long as you tidy after them. It’s good practise to take dog poop bags also.

Make a day of it by taking a scrummy picnic or treat yourself at the excellent Forest cafe. Just outside of the cafe is a park with a very difficult climbing apparatus  – maybe better suited for children aged 6 – 14.

A number of trails lay before you and each takes you along to Salcey forests magnificent Tree top trail.

A very wobbly, gentle incline takes you an astonishing 15 or so metres above the ground ?

Perfectly safe and accessible for wheelchairs and pushchair until you get to the viewing tower at the very top.

Steps rise up to the final viewing tower and the views from it are quite simply breath-taking. You can see for miles & miles.

We visited when a Stick man trail was on but that has now finished. Check the forestry commissions website HERE  for what’s on when you’re thinking of visiting.

Only Bad Point…..

Have you noticed that some irresponsible dog owners make the effort to pick up their dogs waste but then  throw used dog poop bags into the trees along the walk.

Come on! It isn’t a sort of pretty decoration – you know! Also the sound of the M1 can be heard from within the forest which can spoil your peaceful walk.
