Salcey Forest

Former medieval hunting forest nr Northampton

Salcey Forest is a magnificent ancient woodland which is a remnant of the medieval royal hunting forest. It has many miles of ancient wood banks, building remains and ancient trees. The 'druids', or veteran oaks, are rare and amazing wildlife habitats, and some of the old oaks are over 600 years old.

The perfect location for a day out in the forest, we've got walking trails, cycle trails, a children's adventure play area, a horse riding trail, and an onsite café selling tasty homemade meals and cakes in a warm, friendly environment.
