This is a pretty walk where you can enjoy nature. There are benches for those who need a break from walking, or just to sit and enjoy the peace. There is also a nearby cafe for coffee, lunch, etc. either before or after your walk.

Do you want fresh air and gentle exercise? Then you should have a gentle walk in the woodland. After go for a refreshing drink in the nearby cafe.

Did you know that our Beech Wood on Fenside Road also offers easy walking, even easier for those in Boston to access fresh country air.

So glad you enjoy walking in the woods. There are plenty of all-weather paths for those who prefer to keep their shoes clean whilst providing some grassy paths which other people enjoy - although can get a bit muddy at times.
