The Dunkery, Horner Woods, is a hidden gem for mountain biking and walking. This once Royal Forest, about one mile long by two-thirds of a mile wide, has only been open to the public since 1952 and features 'The Beast Hill' on the north side and the delightful 'Dunkery Dales' on the south side. The south side of Dunkery Dales is relatively gentle and has a section of natural narrow gauge railway track (about 12 inches) running up its middle. The local farmers used this to transport goods, with oxen walking alongside the wagons. Walkers and mountain bikers now use the track, and the railway sleepers have been replaced with wooden planks to make the route easier. As well as being a delight for walkers and mountain bikers, the Dales are popular with cross-country runners. North Grove Reservoir is a short distance from the village centre and is used by local anglers.
