Love this place, got it's own unique atmosphere, almost expecting an alien invasion through the woods. Great afternoon out with the grandkids.

These forests were very close and would have been perfect for dog walking but there had been cases of SCI for dogs and warning signs at all entrances, so sadly we were unable to walk there.

Came here to do the UFO trail walk and was very impressed at how organised the trail was. Lots of signs pointing out the correct way to go. Great climbing frame for the kids and the pooch loved the freedom of walking round the trail.

We have yet to find a Forestry commisioned forest that does not live up to our expectations and Rendalsham is no exception. It seems to cater for all from lone walkers, people with dogs to families with children with small bikes and even has a bike park that the youngsters can have a go at. With various of routes to...
