Lots of tracks and you can sometimes get a bit lost and come out quite far from the car park. But the best place for Bluebells to be seen. Its a place which is popular with Families and also Dog walkers. Worth visiting in Bluebell season.

Truly a lovely nature spot. Sometimes you can wander and not see anyone else, well it is 1500 acres. Easy to get lost though, as unfortunately lacks footpath signs (I'd appreciate if there were more). Hothfield Heathland is much much smaller and have many signs. However you can (slowly) build up your knowledge of the place, in sections, then join... More

Lots of walks, ample parking, variety of woodland - beech, pine. The Stour Arts seems to be lacking and many 'exhibits' are either just not there or closed for repair. This doesn't detract from the woodland though and it's a great place to tire the kids out!

beautiful woodland but I am a dog owner and was disgusted by the amount of dog mess people have left, if you don't have a bag at least find a stick to flick away from where small children will tread in it!!!!!!

Best time to see the bluebells. The woods this year was a carpet of bluebells which ever way you went. Lots of walks great for dogs and children if you lucky you could see deer

I was a couple of weeks too early to see the blubells in full bloom so will go again. But I could see that amongst the trees the ground was absolutely covered with bluebells. I then went to the "Halfway House" at Challock for lunch; please see separate favourable review.

I have been visiting Kings woods for 25 years. It used to be a training ground when my brother and I raced Mountain bikes. Now I regularly walk our family dogs through Kings wood, sometimes run and generally go for a chill out on a nice evening. The woods are extremely quiet. You can imagine being anywhere you wish with... More

A wonderful place to meander and lose yourself for a few hours. A variety of trails take you through the woodlands and to some of the local woodland artwork. Wellies needed though!
