Situated in the Darent Valley in the North Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Nine Hole Wood is a relative newcomer to this idyllic area. Named in honour of its previous incarnation as a golf course, the wood is notable for its grassy paths and gentle slope towards the River Darent.
