WALKING, CYCLING & RIDING
We have 5 acres of woodland here at Woodside, so you are welcome to venture out on foot.  Locally there are a number of footpaths, cycle & bridal paths. 

The area has numerous places of interest to visit.  Brochures and information leaflets are to be found in the guest's lounge.

If you see somewhere that interests you, please feel free to use the PC to do some research and print out any literature and maps that will assist you in having a pleasureable day out.
