With 13 hectares of nature reserve, the beautiful Jerusalem Farm and Wade Wood are perfect spots for picnics and paddling! The kids will have great fun splashing about in the stream and there is plenty of space to play ball or Frisbee. There are picnic tables, spots in the shade and you can have a barbecue too!
Look out for woodland birds such as goldfinches, robins, woodpeckers, tree creepers and nuthatches. And if you’re quiet, you might even spot a deer! In the autumn there is woodland fungi and all kinds of flora and fauna to enjoy.
Access to the woods from the car park is by a steep grass track, but there is a zig-zag path from the car park to the grass, which is stroller accessible.
Jerusalem Farm is also a campsite from April-September, with pitches for around 30 tents and a holiday cottage.
