Cheshire Outdoors

From weddings to Segway’s, Cheshire Outdoors has something for everyone! With 15 acres of dense woodland, it’s the perfect location for family walks – and the centre also runs a breadth of activities ranging from archery, falconry and laser clay shooting, to annual festive woodland walks with light installations.

The woodland space is available to book for corporate events such as away days and team building sessions, but we recommend donning your waterproofs and wellies for muddy mooch.
