Delamere Forest is a place to let off steam, explore nature and find peace in the heart of Cheshire's largest forest.
Accessible by its very own train station, you’ll find plenty of gentle, easy-going trails for all abilities, views across to the seven surrounding counties from the top of Old Pale, orienteering courses as well as plenty of peace and quiet to watch the wildlife by Blakemere Moss.
If you'd rather get up into the tree canopy, head up high on a Treetop Adventure at Go Ape, who also offer Segway tours, too! Or hire bikes at the Delamere Forest Bike Hire to explore the trails on wheels. And be sure to check out Delamere Forest Cafe for a well-deserved rest and a range of food and drink.
