Recently went to jeskins to walk my dog... Opted for the enclosed area to let her of the lead,was very dissapointed to find that the grass was very overgrown.. Needs cutting...apart from that very nice hour or two out....

A lovely place for dog walkers , and I'd love to cycle here more often as it suits my slower more leisurely pace than the rough off-road of shorne woods near by. BUT the height barriers they have in place mean that I can't get in with my families bikes all on the roof . And there is nowhere easily to unload outside the gates

Thanks for your comments, Unfortunately the height barrier is necessary to prevent fly tipping and illegal encampments. However, if you email us we can supply legitimate visitors such as yourself with the access code. Email: jeskynsranger@forestry.gsi.gov.uk
