A shady oasis in the midst of the agricultural landscape of the Cheshire Plain. Delamere, south-west of Manchester, is a place to let off steam, escape the crowds and find peace in the heart of the forest.
Delamere Forest provides many gentle forest roads and trails ideal for the less-able or for families with children. There are dry sandstone paths, lots of mature trees to shade or shelter under and Blakemere Moss is an ideal lake for bird watchers.
If you would rather get a bird’s eye view of the forest, treat your group to an outdoor adventure at Go Ape! If heights aren’t your thing, we also have Segway hire available. Delamere has something for everyone!
