Beyond the garden walls, meander through the secluded and ever-changing woodland. Notice the tall, swaying beech and oak trees and feel transported away from the city environment. Every season brings its own character and reward.

Our shelter woodland, a living testament to our history, was originally planted with beech soon after the house was built. Many of these trees, standing tall and proud, still grace our woodland today. Between 1950 and 1965, a variety of pines, larches, oaks, limes, and sweet chestnuts were added, enriching the diversity of our woodland. Ground cover and other plants, carefully chosen to thrive in woodland habitats, including Meconopsis, primulas, foxglove, and the delightful spring bulbs, all contribute to the vibrant tapestry of our woodland.

The woodland has a designed path suitable for wheelchairs and buggies.
