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.
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.
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. Since the early 1990s, this 200-square mile forest, spanning parts of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire, has flourished – transforming one of the least-wooded parts of the country. An impressive 8 million trees have been planted, more than trebling the woodland cover, creating habitats for wildlife and a beautiful landscape for everyone to enjoy – truly, a forest for the nation.
