(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

After a 2km drive along the forest tracks of Great Wood you will arrive at the picturesque area of Ramscombe. Ramscombe is the best place to start your day's activities whether it is a day of walking, cycling, horse riding or a picnic.

Here you will find our 2 mile Red Walk Trail, toilets, barbeques and picnic tables (some are even specially designed for wheelchair use). The car park currently opens at 7am-10pm during the summer (March-October) and 7am-6pm during the winter (November-February).

Parking charges apply

Cars cost £1 for up to 2 hours or £2 for all day.
Minibuses costs £4 and coaches cost £8.

Regular visitors can save money and support the wood with a Discovery Pass, which costs £20 gives free parking all year and a range of other benefits. Visit for more details.
