Wilderness Wood and its cafe is open Wednesdays to Sundays and everyday in the East Sussex school holidays.  Members are welcome to walk during day-light hours even when the cafe is closed.  Customers of Andrew Coates Woodland Products can also come any day during day-light hours.


We ask visitors to ‘Pay As You Feel’ for each visit to the woodland to contribute to the costs of keeping the woods open to the public – path maintenance, fencing, signage, wind-blow clearance, play equipment and insurance.  We also ask you to abide by our  Code of Conduct.




If you come regularly to the woods or would like to be more involved, you can become members of the wood.  Details for the year May 2019 to May 2020 will be published here shortly.  Contact emilyanddan@wildernesswood.org if you have questions or would like to apply.
