This patchwork of broadleaf and conifer woods and heathland is teeming with wildlife. Look out for the veteran trees such as oak, beech and sweet chestnut that date back hundreds of years. Enjoy a buggy-friendly stroll around the sculpture trail or climb to the wood’s highest point for spectacular views over the North Norfolk Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. And it’s all just a 15-minute walk from the seaside town of Sheringham.
