Great place to go

I love it here as the kids can be free to roam and no worrying! Plenty of exercise and interesting info about nature there. There are various length walks too

We had a long walk around these woods on a lovely sunny afternoon. There are footpaths to follow but I should imagine you will need wellies if there has been rain. It was a Sunday afternoon and we only saw one other couple all afternoon. The wildlife and nature within the walk make it really interesting. Very relaxing quiet place.... More

Great place to take the kids and wear them out, nice circular walk through the woods ,wear boots in wet weather or if there's been a lot of rain, not suitable for pushchairs .

Hear the songs of the wild life, not drowned out by life in the fast lane! A quiet stroll though the coppices, the birds singing, you haven't had time to listen since you were a kid! Be cleaver buy a book on trees, and seem like a proffesor to the kids, maybe they in turn will learn that there is... More

We visited the Blean woods during half-term and took grandchildren and nieces along. Fortunately, it was a beautifully sunny afternoon, which made it all the more enjoyable. The entrance was the muddiest section (possibly the mud being churned up by cars parking there) but the rest of the woodland pathways were fine. We had my wheelchair-bound mother with us and...

Many well-maintained pathways...and woods to wander through 'off piste'! My kids enjoy it here, I love it here. On a weekday in August I wandered around around here all day and did not pass one other person! One of the most amazing experiences I've had is coming across huge Highland Cattle in the woods, with 3ft horn-spans... Truly primaeval!! n.b.... More

The footpath here is very well made. There are some nice woodland sculptures to view on your way around as well. Not many birds though??? Spooky.
