Attraction Information

Penn Woods are achingly explorable, ideal for mini beast hunting, leaf collecting, pond dipping, ladybird spotting, snail racing, picnicking and almost anything else you like to do outdoors with the kids!

In an area renowned for its rich stock of ancient woodland, Penn Wood, at its very heart, stands out as one of the largest. The wood forms part of a mosaic of semi-natural ancient woodland and wood pasture, grassland and scrub, rich in wildlife and flora. Some of its older inhabitants include the remains of an ancient beech and a veteran oak, along with a scattering of trees dating back more than 200 years!

Archaeological features dot the site, among them wood banks, flint and clay pits. Penn Wood is well served with a network of paths which allow pram and wheelchair access throughout, as well as being a less muddy walk. The Woodland Trust offers activity packs to print out and take with you so you can stuck that in your bag with the binoculars, the camera and the plastic bags for muddy shoes before you get back into the family motor!
