About Us

Delamere Forest is Cheshire's largest area of woodland and is a place for families to let off steam, escape the crowds and find peace in the heart of the forest.

Delamere is also a haven for wildlife including the beautiful small tortoiseshell butterfly, greater spotted woodpecker, white faced darter dragonfly, green woodpecker, siskin and southern hawker dragonfly. At Blakemere lake there are nesting black headed gulls that you will be able to see and hear.

If you're looking for some great family things to do in Delamere Forest then there is a collection of attractions and activities to keep everyone entertained whatever time of the year.
