Stick Man Games
Join Stick Man on his quest to the family tree. Pick up a Stick Man activity pack from either Top Lodge Cafe, or Fineshade Cycling to help you complete fun activities along the way.
Find out about me, my owner and my favourite place for a walk in Fineshade Wood, as well as great dog friendly places to eat and sleep near by.
Whether you're looking for an easy-going trail for all abilities, to explore the local history, or for a bit of peace and quiet to observe the wildlife, we've got a trail for you.
Enjoy the family cycling route, or challenge yourself with the blue skills loops. Cycle hire, including buggies and trailer bikes, is available on site.
From time to time there are activities and events taking place for people of all ages to enjoy.
Groups with public liability insurance can book our youth shelters, which are tucked away in the wood.
There is also a Caravan Club site at Fineshade that is open to members and non-members alike.
We welcome visitors to our horsebox car park, which is the starting point for the riding trail in Fineshade. The route also links with local bridleways, so that you can explore the wider countryside.
Although red kites often soar above, other wildlife can be seen from the wildlife hide, or whilst you're walking.
The Top Lodge cafe sells a range of locally-sourced food and drink.

I have just visited your woods together with my dog and together we did the 3 mile walk. I have to say I was very disappointed that on th walk there were no dog poo bins so virtually had to do the whole walk with the black bag. Also when got back to the car park there were no disposal bins either. We had bought a picnic and found there were no rubbish bins for waste either. I believe that if you have public places and you wish to keep them smart you need to provide wast bins at regular intervals,

Thank you to all who tried to find my little Alfie the Boston terrier. He went missing worst hour ever. Only found on the path near the car park clever boy..

We had a great family walk along the Gruffalo trail last year and we can't wait to help Stick Man this spring. A great facility, cheap parking, a really worthwhile family day out. The paths are great for pushchairs, there is a shorter walk for toddlers and a great park at the end.
