Explore Pleasley Park
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

Pleasley Park is a lovely mix of broadleeaved and coniferous trees. Its 74 hectares offer delightful walks amongst hazel coppice and beech trees.

There is a pond to discover too. It is bordered to the south and west by footpaths and bridleways.

Adjacent is the Pleasley Mills Complex for outdoor pursuits.

I've been trying to find the car park for a while

Hi, There are instructions on the web page this comment is on and a link to google maps. In case you wouldn't find them here they are. Good luck! Take the A619 out of Mansfield. At the roundabout take the B6407 towards Shirebrook. After 3km turn right along Wood Lane. The car park is 0.5km down the road up a small road on the right. , Post code NG20 8BU

We would like to ride bicycles through Pleasley Park from north to south (Hodhill Farm to Outgang Lane) as part of a connecting ride between SheRwood Pines and the Pheonix Trails. Is this going to be possible please?

Hello Angus and Steff, I don't see why you shouldn't ride through the wood. Please stick to paths and tracks and accommodate other users. Enjoy!

Forestry Commission Response

The wood is beautifully kept but the car park off Wood Lane is hard to find due to a confusing sign stating it is a private road and CCTV in operation on the gate post.

I am glad you enjoy walking in the wood. The entrance to the car park is something we are already looking at. Thanks for your comment.
