Beautiful area for walking and losing yourself in the countryside. Keep your eyes open and you’ll often see wild deer walking through the trees. There are good walking tracks through the woodland and plenty of picnic areas just off the road.

A really great family walk, pop on your wellies and have a stomp through the woods to find pool bridge. I highly recommend gathering sticks at the beginning of your walk as when you get to poo Bridge there aren't many.

I'm sorry I don't know the exact location of the tree tunnel - I didn't go there when I visited Ashdown Forest. However, I am sure if you go to the Ashdown Forest website there should be contact details there, and maps, so... More
