A hidden gem in the countryside south of Rutland! Located between Stamford and Corby, Fineshade Wood provides a picturesque setting for your next family adventure. Featuring a new Superworm activity trail for 2022.

Whether you want to have a leisurely wander through the trees, get the kids to let off some steam at one of the exciting play areas, or go on a family bike ride (bike hire is available), Fineshade Wood is bursting with opportunities to explore the great outdoors.

Discover the latest children’s activity trail or if you take an interest in contemporary artwork, make sure to stop by the exhibition space, The Arches, showcasing different art projects throughout the year. Take a short detour from the Dales Wood trail and you will stumble across a secluded haven for wildlife enthusiasts.

View birds such as the Red Kite or coal tits on the feeders or possibly deer on the lawn in the distance. You may also see the greater spotted woodpecker in the nearby trees. And when all the fun is done, make sure you pop by Grounds Café in the stone-built courtyard for a refuel.

The Superworm activity trail includes lots of fun activities to complete and the new self-led trail will encourage children to become superheroes of the forest themselves. Families will discover brightly illustrated panels, packed with amazing activities designed to get children thinking about these unsung heroes. Questions along the self-led trail will inspire children to think about the everyday heroic feats of the minibeasts of the woods and forests around them. The trail should keep the young ones entertained for around an hour leaving plenty of time to find more fun and explore the forest.

Special Superworm trail packs are available to buy on site from Grounds Café and Cycle Hire for £3.50 with additional activities, including stickers, a superhero mask, creature fact cards, at-home activity sheet, pencil and crayon.
