Walk about half a mile down a quiet country lane in Kingston St Mary (limited car parking) and then cross two fields (which have permissive access but no marked footpath) to reach this small secluded woodland within the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with far-reaching views towards the Blackdown Hills. Follow the hedgerows to reach the entrance but note that all surfaces are uneven and may be seasonally wet muddy and/or slippery with a sustained climb uphill and a step-over stile to access the site.


  • Public access
