(Average user rating: 5 unrated 4.7/5)

A large maturing beech wood with some areas of mature conifer and a stunning bluebell display in the spring.

There is a small car park located on Northington Lane, which is on the south side of the wood. From Junction 9 on M3, travel north on A33, turn right on to Northington Lane. The Car Park is half a mile down lane on left hand side. Postcode SO24 9UB will get you on to Northington Lane but please note this postcode is for a private property further along and on the opposite side of the lane.

There is a surfaced trail that goes from the car park into the wood. Please note that stout footwear is required in wet conditions.



What do other visitors say?

Are the bluebells out yet this spring?

Thank you for your enquiry. At the moment the bluebells are still very green and we estimate it'll be after Easter before the carpet of colour starts to appear.

We went to see Bluebells today, 25th May, still beautiful but not much longer... the best ones were in the small wood to the south of the road.

Spectacular carpet of bluebells invading the forest right now! Spotted 2 deers roaming the forest while taking photograph. Absolutely amazing experience!
