This 60-hectare ancient wood (a former medieval deer park) is delightful throughout the year, but especially in spring when bluebells carpet the woodland floor.
* Various trails to explore (way-marked in different colours)
* Stream jumping!

* Spot the elusive roe deer
Park Wood, Hellingly, BN27 4DA
Free parking (small car park)
There are several waymarked trails to choose from, which are shown on a map in the car park: 3.5 km (blue route, suitable for horses) 3 km (green or red routes) 0.5 km (yellow, black or 'all weather trail' routes)
There are various trails to choose from, each one colour coded and displayed on a large map in the car park.
Whilst a 500m surfaced 'all weather trail' leads from the car park, you really need to travel deeper into the wood to see its true beauty and tranquility. We visited in late April and it was very dry underfoot, despite a couple of recent downpours. However, we would advise wearing wellies in winter or after sustained periods of rain. The blue route (suitable for horses) is wide and would be suitable for young cyclists, when it is dry underfoot.
Dogs may be exercised off-lead, provided they are kept under control. Please pick up after your dog.
