Great place to go with children - but I thought there was an awful amount of litter around - wrappers, cans etc and most horrible dog poo bags thrown into the woods with poo in them. We did the Superworm trail and play park - we did not bring our dog as it clearly says no dogs in the play area- some visitors can't read as there were dogs running about.

this website has opened my eyes to all the things you can do in Wendover woods and I enjoy going there alot. It gives you a sense off freedom and adventure plus I love nature. One problem I would have is a lot of things are REALLY pricey like the childrens birthday parties or the food in the cafe.
