Wild Daffodil

An Ancient Woodland Site of 506 hectares (1214 acres) approximately half of this area is conifer, mainly Norway Spruce and Douglas Fir.

The remainder of the wood comprises broad-leaved trees, largely Oak and Beech.

The woods are noted for their show of spring flowers, in particular the Wild Daffodils.

The whole area is home to a variety of plants and animals, both common and rare. Particularly rich in fauna and flora are the Nature reserves within the woods, namely the SSSI and ASNW (Ancient Semi-natural Woodland).

What do other visitors say?

Hi, do these woods have any trails suitable for a buggy? If so where are they and how long as we like a good walk in the woods! Thanks

Walk from Queens Wood where a couple of shorter routes take you to the lake and back in a circular route on good tracks. There is also a waymarked Greenway trails (white arrow green background) which is about 3 miles long. All trails are getting a bit muddy now so be prepared.
