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 Zog Activity Trail and colouring Competition for 2023.

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.

With colourful panels, fun activity pack and an amazing new augmented reality Zog app to guide you, follow the trail to find out how your little dragons can help care for the forest, others and themselves.

Pick up a Zog colouring sheet at your local trail this summer and pop your creations in the on-site post box for a chance to win Zog goodies!
