Dalby Forest – The Great Yorkshire Forest

Dalby Forest is situated on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park. It is an ideal destination for families, walkers, cyclists and outdoor adventure.  The landscape offers a variety of different trails – whether you are looking for a gentle stroll, challenging bike ride or active run – all amid breath taking scenery.

Dalby Forest is home to an abundance of internationally important wildlife species and is also a designated Dark Sky Discovery Site, where you can experience the magic of seeing the Milky Way with the naked eye.

Come rain or shine, day or night, you will have a fantastic forest adventure and create lasting memories at any time of the year.

Adderstone Field is a great space for kids to run about, play games and enjoy the adventure playground. The large open field is the ideal place to have a BBQ or play ball games. Pack the bag with a football or frisbee and enjoy the space to have fun and games.

Not far from the Dalby Activity Centre, you can get hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks during the school holidays and weekends from Easter to October.
