Delamere Forest is a self-proclaimed ‘shady oasis’, in the heart of Cheshire. Recognisable for its towering deciduous and evergreen trees, the forest is the perfect spot for those looking to escape the everyday.
Visitors can explore the landscape on foot on one of three accommodating walking trails. Dry sandstone paths are easy to traverse, while the forest’s lush canopy of trees provides ample shade throughout the summer months. There’s plenty of safe space for little ones to run around and explore, and dogs are welcome, making Delamere a great family-friendly option.
