Enjoy a short, peaceful stroll through these delightful woods on the edge of the Cotswolds. The area consists of Broadleaved and conifer woodland with a number of woodland walking trails to try. There are lovely views over the surrounding Warwickshire countryside from the forest too. Look out for various wildflowers, bluebells and wildlife including fallow deer. After your walk you can enjoy refreshments at the pub in the village of Whichford.
The Macmillan Way long distance footpath runs through the woods so you could pick this up to extend your walk through Long Compton Woods to the village of Long Compton. If you continue south you will soon come to the fascinating Rollright Stones.
The group of Neolithic and Bronze Age megalithic monuments consists of three groups of stones: the King's Men stone circle, the Whispering Knights burial chamber and the single King Stone.

The circular Hook Norton Walk visits the woods from the nearby village. It also visits Ascott, the Rollright Stones and the village of Great Rollright. It's a nice way of exploring the countryside surrounding the wood.
A few miles to the north is the worthy village of Tysoe where you could enjoy a climb to the Tysoe Windmill. The photogenic old mill sits on top of a 184 metre hill with excellent views over the Cotswolds.
