Astounding in their variety, the magnificent ancient trees alongside Brothybeck's trickling tributary create an enchanting woodland backdrop for walking and provide a haven for birds, hares and roe deer. The wood is in an elevated position surrounded by farmland and has outstanding scenery.

Brothybeck has no car park. It is best reached from the B5305 via the public footpath at the ford where there is a footbridge. The terrain is generally flat and accessible along footpaths which meander through the wood.
