Woodland walks

Choose either the Green, Red or Blue woodland walk as you explore our 100 acres!

  • Green Walk: 900m or 15 mins
  • Red Walk: 1,400m or 30 mins
  • Blue Walk: 2,000m or 45 mins

These walks may take a bit longer if you have little feet or a buggy! They can be muddy too, so wear sensible shoes.


This walk takes you along the edge of our grazing pasture where you can see our sheep or cattle grazing, and through a short section of ancient woodland to the Giants' Chairs picnic area. Continue downhill and don't forget to wave at the tractor as it passes. Test the kids' skills while you stop off in our Mysterious Marsh adventure trail, then pass our Plants and Produce nursery and orchard, more grazing pasture and large play area with hill fort, tube maze and aerial runway before heading back towards the main farm yard.


The same start route as the green walk, but this walk continues further into our ancient woodland up a shallow gradient which has a boardwalk in the muddiest sections. Follow the signs to keep to the path. In spring you will be treated to a carpet of bluebells on the woodland floor as well as wood anemones, lesser celandine and primroses but please do not pick them so everyone can enjoy their beauty. There is beauty and tranquillity to be found here even on a crisp winter's day.

Look out for the Giants' Pencils as you head towards our Secret Lake, a perfect place to have a picnic. Sit around our 'Green Man of the Woods' totem while the kids busy themselves in our designated den building area. Leave the woods to meet our Giant Ssssnake then pass 'Parsley meadow' our Wildflower meadow (open seasonally to walk through). Please keep to the mown path to avoid damaging the flowers. Here you can see an abundance of insect life, especially buzzing bees and fluttering butterflies. Continue to head downhill past our grazing sheep and on to the Giants' Chairs and our Green Walk.


Instead of heading towards the Giants' Pencils and Secret Lake, the blue walk takes you into Rainbow Wood our commemorative woodland. Ten thousand trees make up Rainbow Wood. Here you will find native British trees including Oak, Ash, Hornbeam, Field Maple, Wild Service and Crab Apple. Many of these have been dedicated, so you may see some dedication plaques.

Follow the posts and arrows around the edge of the wood passing the pond or take a shortcut through the grass path rides and glades. Butterflies, birds and dragonflies are abundant here, so keep a keen eye out. As you leave the wood you come across our Giant Ssssnake and follow the green and red walks back toward the farm yard.


Rainbow Wood is a native plantation woodland, which was originally set up as a commemorative wood many years ago. There are many commemorative dedications which you can see as you follow our woodland walks. We no longer take on any new dedications.
