It really is a surprisingly beautiful place and so close to the city centre. Easy parking although the sign says car park closes at 4pm and it wasn't I parked on layby on road as scared of getting locked in!

During 2016, I spent very many days exploring the mediaeval churches and associated historic buildings in South Yorkshire and the surrounding counties – using only public transport – and having explored most of those that are in easy reach, a plan for this year is to further investigate some of the places on the Sheffield Round Walk, starting with a...

Well marked paths and sign posts. Clean , friendly fellow walkers, quiet, in a nice area. Plenty of space to park your car on the road.

With a cafe in a log cabin and a natural bluebell wood 15 minutes from the buzz of Sheffield's Abbeydale Road, city centre, what's not to love about Eccleshall Woods?! Lots of circular trails for all levels of fitness, lots of muddy dogs, babbling brooks and bird song. Perfect Sunday walk.

Love this place. We take the dog for a walk here regularly and stop for a drink and snack. They have regular craft classes which are very good and you get to keep what you make. It's lovely to walk around all year round

Lovely woods! Very nice indeed! Love the cafe and the staff too! Wish the weather was nicer but there is nothing we can do about that.

Visited recently with 2 young grandchildren. We had a lovely afternoon making dens and collecting acorns & chestnuts - nice hot drinks and toasted sandwiches from the cafe to finish off a lovely few hours.
