Banstead Woods

Banstead Woods is just that – some woods with walkways. There’s no facilities, and I’d have thought not the most buggy-friendly of places – but we did see someone with a double Phil & Teds having a roam around – so maybe it’s down to the type of buggy (ie, good on hills).

The woods themselves are a place we’ll keep coming back to – there are glorious bluebells in the woods at the right time of year, and there are plenty of walks to wander around.

We could only find one car park on Holly Lane. It’s a lovely walk, you’ll spend at least an hour there. Throughout the woods are log dens – perfect for hunting for Gruffalo….

Banstead Woods is a fun place. There are no facilities so plan for toilets, food and drink before you leave. Parking is free and entry to the woods is also free.

I’d dress well with waterproofs and wellies for rainy days – even on dry days the walkways can get pretty boggy.
