Yes there is peace by the bucketload in Kings Wood so please do not visit this bit of heaven!
I live locally and visit the woods most days with my dogs in tow. Midweek it is great as walkers are few and far between and it allows us to sit quietly (even the dogs) in hidden spots that we know and watch deer wandering by. There are plenty of deer here but if there are too many visitors the deer clear off and hide in the denser parts of the forest.
You can quite easily get lost in the woodlands if you stray from the paths so be careful to keep your bearings. We never have to enter by the car park in White Hill thank God as it can get crowded at peak times.
There is also a wide variety of birds, including buzzards, fluttering around the area and a smattering of artwork in different forms dotted around the forest - it's a big place!
King's Wood is also visited by big cats thought to be leopards who use it as a restaurant and will take deer. We have found remnants of carcasses and many people have reported sightings of big cats though you will be very lucky to see one as they will see/smell you first and slink into the dense undergrowth. Be warned! Keep an eye on your dog if it is off the lead.
In April/May time the forest comes alive with thick carpets of bluebells creating a magical sight. If you visit at that time then look but not pick please.
I don't know why I am telling you all this because I really want the keep Kings Wood a secret but if you must come then please respect the environment and take your rubbish home and also not walk around shouting your head off ..... some oiks have been known to do that.
