Wyre Forest has become the largest woodland National Nature Reserve (NNR) in England.

Wyre offers exciting forest activities for all ages from walking, cycling, horse riding and even Go Ape.

The forest is a vast area of natural beauty and no two visits will be the same as the seasons turn. We have a selection of walking, running and horse-riding trails, as well as a family cycle route, bike hire, orienteering, play area and onsite café – all surrounded by breath-taking scenery.

Four legged friends are welcomed with open arms at Wyre with our dog friendly café and onsite dog wash.

You can hire bikes from our knowledgeable staff at Bewdley Outdoors and for the truly adventurous why not experience the forest from up high on the Go Ape course.
