With some 100 acres of native woodland and pasture on our family run, working farm, our walks offer a variety of habitats that support a wealth of flora and fauna. In addition to the carpets of bluebells that flourish in their undisturbed environment, we have other spring favourites including primrose, violets, wood sorrel and kingcup.
Along with our ancient oaks, there are beech, hornbeam, ash, sycamore and hawthorn as well as hazel that bears the evidence of coppicing from centuries past.
Pause at our picnic viewpoint and soak up the breathtaking vista as a buzzard soars overhead or immerse yourself beneath the newly opened tree canopy and listen to the birdsong.
Ample free parking. For group and coach parties please call in advance 07891 930483
All paths are natural and unsurfaced so please wear appropriate footwear.
We regret that, due to the nature of our walks, they are not suitable for wheelchair access. However, there is wheelchair access to the garden and marquee areas. Please telephone for more information.
Guide dogs only.
In the event of severe wet weather we may have to close the walks. Please telephone before your visit if in doubt.
Yoxall Lodge lies within The National Forest, the country's boldest environmental initiative, transforming 200 square miles of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire: a forest in the making for everyone to enjoy. Since the early 1990s 7.8 million trees have been planted, taking one of the least wooded regions of the country over half way to the ultimate goal of one third woodland cover throughout the Forest area.
