The general public is welcome to walk in the wood during cafe opening hours. The cafe is open Wednesday to Sunday 9am-5pm and every day in the school holidays.  We are closed on  July 15th, September 9th and September 30th for weddings – and early closure on July 22nd.  We re-open on the Sunday at 9am.


We ask you to ‘Pay As You Feel’ for each visit 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.
