Cardinham Woods details...

Cardinham Woods, just outside Bodmin, is a beautiful mixed woodland offering a range of activities to suit the whole family and a great value day out.

Cardinham is famed for its walking trails, from easy routes for beginners to longer walks that include steep valley climbs and fantastic views. You can even glimpse the past as you discover the old lead and silver mine of Wheal Glynn.

For little legs and families with pushchairs, there is an easy access trail where you can take part in a fun activity trail that brings the popular Zog story to life. Head out on a woodland journey with Zog the loveable dragon and all the characters from the popular story by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Ban the holiday boredom and let the kids explore their wild side with Badger Forest School. Offering holiday clubs and regular sessions during term times, your children will have a day of exploration and adventure in the woods, developing their woodland skills, building confidence and making friends. Full information and booking can be found at www.badgerforestschool.co.uk

Looking for something a bit more exhilarating? Dig out the mountain bike and take on the 12km Bodmin Beast Trail with the option of adding in some extra technical sections.

No visit to Cardinham is complete without trying the delicious homemade food and cakes from the award-winning Woods Café. Family and dog friendly, snuggle by the roaring log fire in winter or lounge outside during the summer while the kids let off steam in the play area. Brought your own food? Take advantage of the large picnic area and static BBQs next to the bubbling stream, perfect for quality family time.

Enjoy 12 months parking at Cardinham Woods as well as exclusive offers and discounts for just £32. Visit www.forestryengland.uk/membership for more information.
