Route:

This short walk journeys through a young mixed woodland, which has a stunning display of bluebells in the early spring. The woodland opens out into a wildflower meadow, which is alive with colour and insect activity throughout the summer.

The path winds through the wildflowers, crossing the main driveway, where you can capture the distinctive view of the front of Springhill house, before stopping at the enchanting tree door to see if the wee folk are at home. Children and adults alike can enjoy an adventure through the woodlands to uncover clearings, full of natural climbing frames. There are rope swings and dens, mud pie pits and snail racing courses, mystical creatures and thrones to capture imaginations. Encouraging children of all ages to discover the woodland, throughout the seasons, creating their own stories and games as they play. The trail finishes at the exit gate lodge where our second hand book shop is located.

The Sawpit Hill Walk and/ or Beech Walk can be incorportated into this walk to extend the route.
