Haldon Forest Park is a 3 500 acre woodland just 15 minutes outside of Exeter. Explore the forest and take in some spectacular views, on foot or by bike, with a range of walking and cycling trails to suit every ability. For visitors with limited mobility we have four off-road mobility scooters available for hire as part of the Countryside Mobility Trust Scheme, and Forest Cycle Hire offers a range of disability options including e-bikes. Feeling adventurous? Try a Segway tour or experience the forest from above with a Tree Top Adventure at Go Ape. The Ridge Cafe is open daily, serving a range of delicous cakes, lunches and refreshing ice-creams in the summer months.
