At the southern end of the woods you can enjoy a climb to Ravensgate Hill and Wistley Hill for better views.
The Cotswold Way National Trail runs right through the woods so you could pick this up to extend your walk. Heading north will take you to Dowdeswell Woods and Reservoir where there are more nice trails and lots of wildlife to see. Just to the west of the woods is the climb to Leckhampton Hill where there are earthworks and fine views to the Severn vale.
